Editorial Reviews

Yosvany Terry has helped redefine the Afro-Cuban and contemporary jazz idiom in the New York music scene. Mr. Terry's new release Today's Opinion reflects the growth of a young but mature composer in the international music scene. The music of this album reflects Mr. Terry's deep cultural roots as well as the versatility of his musical styles. An extraordinary cast of musicians performs on this recording: Michael Rodriguez on trumpet, Osmany Paredes on piano, Yunior Terry on bass, Obed Calvaireon drums, Pedro Martinez on percussion and vocal, and Yosvany Terry on saxophones and chekere. This exceptional, multilayered recording Today's Opinion manages to be simultaneously accessible and profound; it signals the next phase of Mr. Terry's distinctive personal vision.

Yosvany Terry has been a major part of the New York City jazz scene for a number of years now and his blending of Afro-Cuban music with jazz has always been phenominal. His most recent project, Today's Opinion, is another example of his outstanding composing, arranging and playing skills.

Yosvany is joined by some of the best jazz players in New York City, all well versed in both jazz and Afro-Caribbean music. All the musicians contribute strong performances and the solos of especially of Yosvany (sax), Michael Rodriguez (trumpet) and Osmany Paredes (piano) are subperb. The recording sounds like a great live set, a tribute to the musicians and the great people at Systems Two Recording Studios in Brooklyn.

This music reflecting various moods, is sophisticated, rhythmic, swinging and emotionally moving.

I buy and listen to a lot of music and this recording is one of the strongest jazz recordings I have heard in a long time.
YOU NEED TO GET THIS RECORDING.

Do not sleep on this wonderful cd. If you like Zenon and David Sanchez you'll like this guy . This music has the same impact on Latin jazz that Andrew Hill's Point of Departure did on post-bop. Essential listening .

"Today's Opinion" by Yosvany Terry is without a doubt one of the top jazz recordings of 2012. For those who do not know him, Mr. Terry first exploded on the scene as a key player on the stunning ¡Cubanismo! debut in 1995 and has been going strong ever since, playing and producing on dozens of noteworthy Latin Jazz projects. On this, his second release as a band leader, Mr. Terry has assembled some of best players from the New York jazz community including Michael Rodriguez on trumpet, Osmany Paredes on piano, Yunior Terry on bass, Obed Calvaire on drums, Pedro Martinez on percussion and vocal, and of course Mr. Terry on saxophones and chekeré. The great Gonzalo Rubalcaba plays piano and keys on one track, as well.

Mr. Terry's skills as a composer and arranger shine on this recording. All of the tunes are written by Mr. Terry with the exception of `Suzanne' which is co-written by his brother, Yunior. Mr. Terry artful blends Afro-Cuban traditions with a contemporary jazz sensibility to express his uniquely creative vision. Mr. Terry's sophisticated compositions seem to unfold organically, providing plenty of room for skillful exchanges amongst the talented cast of performers.

Simply put, "Today's Opinion" is music that richly rewards everyone who listens to it. As such, this latest achievement firmly establishes Mr. Terry as one of the leading musicians of our time. It is not to be missed!
