CONRAD HERWIG: The Latin Side of Herbie Hancock
Half Note, 2010

LATIN JAZZ – Trombonist Herwig has made a cottage industry out of “Latinizing” the works of modern jazz giants. But while that concept may be gimmicky, the music is not. The arrangements are bright and rock solid, and the band, recorded live at NYC’s Blue Note club, knows how to make them shine. Not the most explosive Latin jazz, but quite strong, and Hancock’s tunes make for a very interesting repertoire.

Conrad Herwig : trombone
Craig Handy : saxophones, flute, bass clarinet
Mike Rodriguez, Randy Brecker : trumpet
Bill O'Connell, Eddie Palmieri : piano
Ruben Rodriguez : bass
Robby Ameen : drums
Pedro Martinez : percussion

Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 3, 5, 7

1. 10:17 – mid-uptempo with a steady burn: upbeat horn solos, piano groove
2. 5:33 – brisk & sassy with excellent percussion; good trumpet & trombone
3. 8:53 – slinky tune, warm & winding: bass clarinet & elegant piano add class
4. 6:59 – serious air, bouncing rhythm: first half is twisty, second half bright
5. 9:22 – perky tune, funky bass: saucy horns, piano bounce, percussion jam
6. 8:42 – relaxed, frictionless glide with flute, solos are warm and sweet
7. 9:31 – holds a steady groove: cool trombone & piano solos
8. 6:57 – upbeat strut: players bounce solos around like a ball, piano digs in
