Editorial Reviews

A duet of exquisite beauty, performed by rising Cuban/jazz/classical crossover
masters Elio Villafranca and Arturo Stable. Villafranca s virtuosic and
multifaceted pianism engages Stable s poly-rhythmic percussion genius on 10
original compositions that pay tribute to the spiritual, classical, and traditional
legacies of Cuba, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, and Spain.
As pianist, composer, and co-producer of the album Things I Wanted To
Do by Chembo Corniel, Villafranca was nominated in the 2010 Grammy
Awards for Best Latin Jazz Album.
Steinway artist Elio Villafranca and Ritmo artist Arturo Stable were both
classically trained at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana, and are now
at the forefront of the latest generation of remarkable Cuban artists making
major creative contributions to the international development of modern jazz.
Together and separately, Villafranca and Stable have developed loyal
followings as leaders and for their work with the world s top musicians, who
include Wynton Marsalis, Pat Martino, Johnny Pacheco, John Faddis,
Billy Harper, Esperanza, Lionel Loueke, and Paquito d Rivera.

Format: Audio CD
This is a magnificent work. The stellar musicianship, creativity and soul of this collaboration shine brightly and clearly... no band needed here. The sparse format reveals the subtlety and sensitivity only artists of this caliber are capable of.
Fifteen stars!

Every cut is very good to excellent! There is good, imaginative rhythm and a clear recording. I'm getting another by the same artist.

I usually leave comments about music to the experts, but can't keep from doing so for this album.

This music got my attention while I browsing in a shop. It wasn't playing loudly, but my ears kept noting "whoa, what is that!?!" Finally, I had to ask the shop owners, and ordered a copy by phone, on the spot. And then stayed in the shop to hear the entire album.

Rarely have I heard music be so well distilled to it's minimum components with such maximum impact. And to have pretty much all the elements fit into such a minimalist "mode" (lacking a better word).

All done with only piano and percussion, which work together seamlessly. (The last two tracks do have some excellent, haunting vocals.) Both musicians make their mastery sound effortless, and my ears never tire of "picking out" the almost infinite variety of techniques woven in.

IMO, the music sidesteps being boxed in. It's lively without being overbearing, soft without being sleepy, energetic without domineering. As appropriate for evening relaxation as for a morning pick-up, excellent as a focal point and also as background (play it for a party!).

As for categories, the best I can do is to put "world" in front of the category and "+" after it, to highlight it's more than just that category. Like, "world jazz +", "world cuban +", etc.

Give it a listen - here's betting you'll also be mesmerized.
