Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
[An immediate note is that this album is even better, far better than the series of short previews can convey.] With each track portraying a city with various jazz, classical, and dance structures, in quartet settings or full ensemble (including maracas, harp, bass clarinet, tenor saxophone, flute, and the Venezuelan large ukelele, the cuatro [4-6 strings, single or as doubles). Opening with folk melodies and rich section-intermingled and fully orchestration, a scherzo arrives with the shrill plucking and strumming cuatro. In a more intimate setting of piano, saxophone, bass, and drums, the bass clarinet with adding ensemble first becomes abstract in themes and then turns to a ballad style with storytelling development. Track 4 itself consists of a series of movements leading to a percussive elaboration. Track 5 is the full orchestra festive, folk-rooted final. Simon's Ensemble Venezuela has gained a fine reputation and Chamber Music America commissioned this Suite; it has been performed in Venezuela and the United States. Thus, classical in approach, jazz, popular, and folk in styling, Simon's composition and arrangement presents a grand contemporary and optimistic portrait of Venezuela.

Classic Venezuelan rhythms and songs become inspiration for jazz. Lovely, rich compositions and eloquent soloing. Bravo Edward Simon. Many Latin American and Caribbean countries' musical traditions -- most notably Cuban, Brazilian, and Puerto Rican --have been explored using jazz's own traditions of improvisation and daring musical exploration. Less so, Venezuela. That's changed now. Simon honors both Venezuela's musics and US jazz with this fine recording. Note: it's shorter than the standard CD but it's also priced accordingly--making this recording a great bargain as well as a great listen.

Not what I expected based on the Downbeat review. Still it was good just not what I expected. This CD will require many more listenings.
