Editorial Reviews

New York saxophonist Paul Carlon and his band pay a colorful Latin jazz tribute to composer Billy Strayhorn, composer of many of the greatest hits of the Duke Ellington Orchestra.
Imagine the soundtrack to a Fellini film, starring Duke Ellington and Billy
Strayhorn on a spiritual quest through las Américas with funky bass, Yoruban
chants, and a killer horn section!
Brims with internationally recognized Latin jazz sidemen and leaders including
Benjaim Lapidues, Chembo Corniel, and Pedrito Martinez

Format: Audio CD
This feast of terrific music is all over the board - tender, spunky, lively - all with the colors of Latin music. Billed as a Tribute to Billy Strayhorn there is also Duke Ellington in the mix. The result is music we all know suffused with Latin flavors. This particular ensemble has been working with Paul Carlon for over a decade. La Rumba is a Lovesome Thing is a whimsical look at how some of the greatest music of a generation might have played out with a totally different lyrical twist. What makes this particular release memorable is not just one particular Latin influence but the masterful why in which Carlon always the music of Brazil, Puerto Rico, Peru, Colombia, Argentina and particularly Cuba guide the listener on an amazingly textured journey packed with flavor.

The ensemble includes some of the finest musicians performing today: first of course is Paul Carlon: tenor and soprano saxophones, flute, arrangements, Anton Denner: alto saxophone, flute, piccolo, Alex Norris, trumpet, Mike Fahie, trombone, Mark Miller: trombone, Ryan Keberle: trombone, John Stenger, piano, Dave Ambrosio, acoustic bass, William "Beaver" Bausch, drumset, Christelle Durandy, vocals, Benjamin Lapidus, vocals and decima, tres, Wilson "Chembo" Corniel, congas, Obanilu Ire, barriles and maraca, Pedrito Martinez, vocals, congas, and batá.

The tracks here are as follows:

Johnny Come Lately
Take The A Train
After All
Day Dream
U.M.M.G
Tonk
A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing
Sweet And Pungent
Passion Flower
Chelsea Bridge.

Everyone in the ensemble bets a moment to shine, and shine each does!
