SNOW OWL: Normas
Inner Circle, 2013

NEO-FUSION – Snow Owl (Juan García-Herreros) is a 6-string electric bassist originally from Colombia and now based in Austria. His music combines aspects of Latin/world music, fusion, and postbop, and many of the tunes are based loosely on modern jazz classics (not that you can recognize them). Long, mellow introductions, hard-hitting group jams with strong percussion, lonely ballads. Interesting stuff.

NOTE: Track 2 leads right into #3.

Fo’s Picks: 2, 3, 4, 6

1. 7:18 – bright midtempo: jabbing horns & piano over steady rolling rhythm
2. 10:12 – very long birdcall intro; hopscotch theme, cool balafon & bass solos, ends with 2:00 of dreamy synths; fade out anywhere you like.
3. 5:39 – uptempo fusion: twisty melody, driving sax/bass/guitar, crunchy end
4. 8:52 – solo bass clarinet for 2:40; then a very slow, deeply aching ballad
5. 12:47 – billowing solo piano for 3:40; then exotic midtempo contemporary; virtuoso high-register bass solo, soulful sax
6. 9:28 – drum solo intro; fast skittery beat, jabbing piano, horns look skyward
7. 8:55 – solo sax for 2:00, a slow, gentle ballad launches to soaring heights
