CD Preview of Normas

"NORMAS" IS LATIN JAZZ NETWORK'S ALBUM OF THE WEEK ! 

 
5 STAR REVIEW  ! ALBUM OF THE WEEK: SNOW OWL: NORMAS -- Review by Raul da Gama
 
It is apocryphal that you can take the Colombian out of the Cumbia, but you can never take the Cumbia out of the Colombian. Thus the now-Austrian-based Colombian bassist Juan García-Herreros has been endowed with the infinite beauty of Colombian rhythms even as he bends and stretches these and melding them with the swirling and swaggering Afro-Caribbean rhythms, and further, with the exciting elasticity of jazz.

Normas

by Snow Owl

Each and every established Jazz artist must at one point of his career record a "Standards" Album. It is an homage to the tradition and a proof of his improvisational accomplishments. For my next CD entitled "Normas" ( Standards in spanish ) I have accepted this challenge. I have taken the titles of famous Jazz Standard compositions , and Translated them into my interpretation of what the Standards of today in Jazz should be. For example a simple John Coltrane Blues entitled Mr.P.C. is now a complex and multi-rhythmical song in a 5/4 meter Clave with the title Señor C.P. !

The ensemble requires the hottest and biggest names in Latin Jazz today mixed up with the tradition of this amazing art form. We have Grammy winning and nominated musicians performing ORIGINAL compositions. Each title is a song, a story and a journey. Improvising over a standard is old fashioned, but setting a new model for which the tradition can grow on is a whole other monster. This CD production will not just be a Bass soloist showing off some chops on his instrument. It is the documented sounds of a musician's pilgrimage through our planet , interpreting it's mysteries with sound.

African Drums, Burning Latin Montunos , Blazing melodies , screaming guitars and Balkan odd meters all in one session ! Performing, working, admiring and developing each other's spiritual traditions.

a new standard - NORMAS !!!!!
