PANAMA 500

In 1513, Spanish explorer Vasco Núñez de Balboa crossed the Isthmus of Panama, becoming the first European to reach the Pacific Ocean and founding the first permanent European settlement in the Americas. Those events continue to resonate five centuries later as Panama celebrates the landmark anniversary.

Editorial Reviews

Danilo Perez' debut on Mack Ave Records is deeply anticipated by the critical community and while that level of near-academic excitement exists, it is vital to remember that this music is truly moving on visceral, physical and emotional planes. In a nutshell - and from the artist himself - Providencia crosses streams of jazz, classical and Latin American folk music, which Perez refers to as 'hearing music in three dimensions.' The title track itself is buoyed by pulsating Latin rhythms and an enticing vocalizes foray. While there is no doubt that talent and technique abound on this record - in Danilo's facile fingers and players - a great heart also resides in the compositions and performances. The birth of his daughters and his ongoing commitment to education and social change through music spark his desire to make music that matters - music for all to enjoy and hopefully draw inspiration from its vivacity. 'Daniela's Chronicles' is part of an ongoing symphony he's writing for his daughter and 'Cobilla' is a title she contributed to one of the CD's tunes, a challenging yet playful exploration. This is well worth the 25 years Danilo claims it took for him to create this exemplary music - only you have to set aside an hour to partake in its fruits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz Adventures September 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Danilo Pérez composes and plays a wide style of mainstream jazz, all highly inventive with classical, global, and especially Latin influences but unique to his own. The musicians of this album are of diverse ethnic or national background, Indian and Lebanese, Colombian and Portuguese, and American. Consider also the instruments of his ensemble -- bass, drums and steelpan, congas, alto saxophone, flute, oboe, French horn, bassoon, clarinet, and Pérez's piano, percussion, and Fender Rhodes. Thus, this very modern jazz album has a classical chamber music or suite quality to it. Each track is an adventure, sometimes cruising, sometimes frantic, some with passion, some with deep intellect. From romance to hard bop, they produce various moods. Even some Ethiopian dissonance appears in Galactic Panama, perhaps because both nations share the same latitude. The more accessible tracks are Daniela's [his daughter's] Chronicles; the joyous Bridge of Life, Part I; and the somewhat avant-garde classical Bridge of Life, Part II. All tracks, however, are striking. They capture our curiosity and interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Uplifting And Colourful Masterpiece! May 27, 2014
By RH
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Signing his next major recording contract with Detroit’s Mack Avenue Records,
Danilo Perez would successfully enter the 2010’s just as confident and innovative
as ever when he released this highly ambitious project in 2010 that solely present
an eleven-track suite which consists of globally-conscious music that successfully
fuses the true elements of jazz, classical and Latin American folk music. Inspired
by the wonderment and challenges for contributing to the healthy future of his two
daughters, Providencia places his longtime trio (Ben Street and Adam Cruz) right
alongside an eclectic cast of guest musicians where this chemistry resulted into a
genre-defined success. Beginning with the opening track Daniela’s Chronicles (a
loving ode to one of his daughters), the melodic track set proceed on other mem-
orable compositions, including Galactic Panama, Bride Of Life- Part I, The Oracle
(dedicated to Charlie Banacos), The Maze and the title track to whom Danilo and
the band performs with grace and integrity. Hailed as another of his greatest and
most important achievements, the success of Providencia had resulted in a genre
defining foray heightened by intense improvising and encouraging responsibilities.
A seamless melding of styles, subdued undercurrents and true rhythmic intensity,
Danilo leads his band through the music with commanding control at the piano as
guests star Rudresh Mahanthappa brings in a flurry of energy with his saxophone
on several tracks (notably Galactic Panama and The Maze—a duet in two parts),
which tosses the solo lines back and forth played over with instable Latin-inspired
groove, which made this such a time-honoured success. Now here is yet another
landmark hit that the great jazz pianist-composer will always be immortalized for.
