Format:Audio CD
Sinatra wasn't exaggerating when he sang with confident authority: "If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere." It was a tribute to the Apple quite unlike the musical love-letter he used to close his frequent concerts in the Windy City, which was "My Kind of Town." Still, if you're serious about music--and if you're good, as opposed to being another pretty young "radio" singer dreaming of striking gold in Nashville or L.A., NYC is the challenge, the litmus test, the Darwinian "musical selection process" that the genuinely deserving must be willing to submit themselves to.

Cristina Pato certainly has no illusions about the challenge and is prepared to take it on. "Migrations" even includes "NYC" in its sub-title, a virtual "announcement" by the multi-talented multi-culturalist that her aim is to move from Spain and crack the tough, unforgiving NYC music scene. If "Migrations" contains a slightly sour note for this listener, it's the unmistakeable sense that the album is a "showcase" disc, a demonstration of all the artist's wares, which necessarily prevents it from being of a piece, or a unified whole fully worthy of the artist.

Upon listening to the first track, be prepared for a jolt. The lone sound of the bagpipe (Pata's musical "calling card") takes a bit of getting used to. It plays quarter tones (the sounds between the cracks of the piano keys) and has a timbre and vibrato that, while reminding the listener of other instruments--say, Miles Davis' harmon-muted trumpet played with its 1960s' fullness and intensity--yet is clearly a sound unto itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Difficult Instrument, Incredible Virtuosity January 22, 2013
By Bob V
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Ms. Pato says that the limitations of this instrument create such a challenge to bring out the richness of the gaita. She far exceeded expectations. This is piping as I never could have imagined. She and her band create music
full of passion and energy. Rock, jazz or traditional? It's difficult to classify. Lets just call it beautiful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting April 12, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To me... half good and half weird. Great voice and bagpipes, but some really really odd choices of material and arrangement. If you like edgy music, you may like this.
