Stirring jazz standards Calle Loíza Jazz Project – THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER YOU: This band is brand new to me, but the eight players in the band play some of the most stirring jazz standards I’ve heard (yet) in 2020. At this point, there are no LIVE videos of them on YouTube (that’s something you need to do, folks), but you can hear all the songs on this album when you SUBSCRIBE to their topic channel.
Their performance on Frank Churchill’s “Some Day My Prince Will Come” will thrill any (and ALL) true jazz lovers… the tune length is 10:24, and they provide plenty of dynamic and lively changes all through the piece… GREAT jazz!
If you love Miles Davis, you’ll find the opener, “Seven Steps to Heaven“, very much to your liking… superb percussion and strong rhythms make this track an absolute winner; plus, it’s only 4:26, so I have no doubt jazz DJ’s across the globe will be airing this one on a regular basis.
One of the things I always search for on a new album is (what I call) “roadability” (that simply means that it HAS to go on my iPhone player, lol)… the tune that really stood out for that on this release is their performance on the 7:14 “Stolen Moments“… full of LIFE, it is!
After listening through the album twice, my personal choice for favorite of the eight (LONG) tracks they offer up for your jazz journey is “Dolphin Dance“… uniquely arranged and among the tastiest interpretations of Herbie’s tune I’ve ever heard.
I give the Calle Loíza Jazz Project a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this most listenable album. Get more information on their website. Rotcod Zzaj
