Editorial Reviews


Valega is still one of the most swinging drummers around, with snappy trap-work, and an ear for compositions that carry a sense of cool freedom, bringing to mind the 1960s modal sounds in a contemporary setting.

An album of unquestioned elegance, spunk and rich melodies, Awake is an engaging collection of music bound to capture your attention, hold your interest and never, never put you to sleep.

Valega is a spectacular drummer, delivering just what each track needs without over-powering or taking center stage at the expense of musicality. He is obviously much more than a drummer. He is a composer, able to invent interesting and engaging melodies and harmonies which provide the perfect vehicle for extended improvisations. He is a band leader with the considerable skills to know how to pick the musicians that will make his music as effective as possible. --Jazz Improv Magazine, New York

Format: Audio CD
Sexy sounds abound in this second studio recording by Vinson Valega, one of my favorite Jazz drummers on the New York scene. What's remarkable here is Valega's commitment to recording with the same kind of buoyant, hip-swaying party atmosphere that distinguishes his live performances. Listening to Awake honestly feels like being there. Undertow is the sound of early romance waning, capturing both its pains and its personal freedom. Take Time For Love reminds one of the cozy joy that mature love brings, the trust you feel when the Other reveals a careful understanding of something hidden in you. Awake continues Consilience Productions tradition of featuring outstanding contemporary art on its album covers; in this case it's the work of New York artist, Sharon Louden.
