Call, Arturo Stable's entrancing new release on the Origen Records label, verifies the potential of this new path as it redefines the outer limits of Latin jazz through complex and compelling original works and an outpouring of virtuosic performances by Stable and his quintet. Call is the attention-grabbing follow-up to his 2007 Origen Records release Notes on Canvas, a particularly ambitious offering that featured the composer s sonic interpretations of iconic paintings by Monet, Picasso and other masters. That critically-lauded effort featured a rotating guest list that included such luminaries as saxophonists Paquito D Rivera, George Garzone and David Sanchez and vibraphonist Victor Mendoza. In contrast, Call is a quintet outing showcasing pianist Aruan Ortiz, bassist Edward Perez, saxophonist Javier Vercher and drummer Francisco Mela, with special guest Ian Izquierdo on violin. It drives home the point that Stable isn t content to repeat himself and is constantly in search of challenging new music settings to conquer. The 10 tracks on this album, all Arturo's original creations, reflect a wide range of influences, from Middle Eastern and Spanish airs to multi-layered Afro-Cuban modes. With this new album as his new calling card, it s easy to understand why Arturo Stable is being recognized as one of the most accomplished and dynamic leaders of the new Latin jazz tradition.
