Review: Pianist Camilo returns to revisiting his music on a very large palette – his first big band recording in twenty-five years. This recording is a wide-ranging celebration of Camilo’s art that spans decades since his earliest recording. The music is unlike anything you might have heard from the pianist before.
It is ingenious in its picturesque detail as well as in its overview of Camilo’s melodic, harmonic and rhythmic conception, while staying within in the Latin jazz orbit.
