I've been anticipating the release of this album for some time since I am a huge Jesse Cook fan and this new master-piece does not disappoint.
The feel of the album is very different compared to previous releases but I find myself lost in a new intrigue of musical passion as I enjoy the energetic tempo of songs like, "Matisse the Cat" and "Havana". Melissa McClelland's rich voice aligns beautifully with a brilliant arrangement of Bob Dylan's, "It Ain't Me Babe". I found several songs, such as "Turning" and "Europa" very ethereal and magical. If you are a Jesse Cook fan or just love the sound of a beautiful guitar, this CD is a must!

Different than his other CDs, more introspective, more feeling.
A good range from the very upbeat "Matisse the Cat" the smooth
"Cafe Mocha", the driving beat of "Havana" to the most tender
feeling guitar solo I have ever heard, "Alone" which I could listen
to endlessly. But that's the quality that describes Jesse's
music, you can never get enough.

I am an avid music collector. Virtually every style except rap, and heavy heavy metal. I own literally thousands of albums. Jesse Cook is, in my humble opinion, the most talented acoustic guitar player I have ever heard. I love his music. The DVD included with this album is worth the price of the album alone! What a sound! I easily give five stars to all of his recordings. I own them all, with the exception of THE ULTIMATE JESSE COOK.(no need for a greatest hits album when one owns all of the albums!) A must for all serious music lovers, not just lovers of flaminco.

This CD is even better than his previous - especially when you see him perform it live. His magnetism, stage presence, and fellow artists are rich in entertaining culture. Its amazing what he can do to others recordings such as Dylan. Looking forward to many more performances and CD's from Jesse Cook.

This has got to be the best guitar playing I have heard in a long, long time. The rhythm is so compelling and the lead is so passionate I thought I was somewhere deep in the middle of a steamy Latin country, dancing perfectly to each beat. I have listened to many genre of music over the past 50 years and find the Spanish guitar style so riveting. Maybe because of my own Hungarian background and the lead violin going on. One minute you are happy and the next minute tears are streaming down your face for some unforseen reason. It's as if this music has just reached down and grabbed your very soul. You can feel every beat of your heart. Your foot won't stop tapping. I have not felt so alive in a long time. This is truly someone to be beckoned with. Jesse Cook totally gets music!

I have all of Jesse Cook's music (except his Montreal CD which was just a live performance of some of his music). He's a great musician (I also have seen him live, and plan to see him again in July 08). As to the CD, if you have heard his music, you will like the CD. It's a little fast in a couple of songs, and there is some actual singing on one song (Spanish), but mostly it is guitar music with nice background percussion and occasionally some string instruments. He's a innovative musician (with a sense of humor) that has created an easy going, pleasant background music (I pick and choose some of his music for massage background music). In sum, it's an excellent CD, but I will admit I am slightly biased. I'm not sure if I would label his music as adult alternative or new age.

It has been three years since Jesse Cook's last studio project Nomad. Much like its title it seemed to use the world as its stage and foundation for the musical themes that were presented. Though not quite as global, Frontiers once again represents another stellar performance from the flamenco guitarist. Technically brilliant, Cook continues to create and embrace beautiful melodious memoirs that will leave his fans once again delighted in his latest recording.

Prior to Frontiers, Cook also recorded his stellar 2004 live performance Montreal that was released in 2005 on Narada. According to Cook's liner notes it was around the time of that performance that both he and his wife retreated to Seville, Spain where they spent a spectacular four months inhaling the culture. Apparently the romantic environment also resulted in them finding out that they would soon be parents for the first time. Once again, Jesse cleared out his schedule and had time to complete the songs you are about to hear.

Frontiers has a more defining European-Mediterranean theme to it, merging celebrative and reflective moments. Wisely, the album is well sequenced opening with the toe tapping "Matisse The Cat" that will leave your flamenco appetite purring for more. Typical of a Jesse Cook song, the melody will immediately bury itself in your memory which is then filled in with intricate details driven by pulsating percussion. This song will be mentioned in the same breath as his other wonders "Rattle And Hum", "Tempest" and "Mario Takes A Walk" just to name a few. Another soon to be classic is "Havana" which musically parallels the exotic location that it speaks of. The slight twist is what sounds like a combination of string and horn integration that thrusts the song along.
