Birds of a Feather

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ronnie D. Lankford
The Caribbean Jazz Project has built its reputation by forging a colorful blend of Latin and Caribbean styles. Whether one references Dizzy Gillespie's pioneering work, or more recent work efforts in Afro-Cuban jazz, the Caribbean Jazz Project seems comfortable exploring and stretching the genre. Although the band's lineup has continued to evolve on Birds of a Feather, vibraphonist Dave Samuels, trumpeter Ray Vega, percussionist Robert Quintero, drummer Dafnis Prieto, and bassist Ruben Rodriguez remain from the original incarnation. A number of guests, including trumpeter Randy Brecker, guitarist Romero Lubambo, and drummer Mark Walker help fill out the arrangements....

All Music Guide - Ronnie D. Lankford
The Caribbean Jazz Project has built its reputation by forging a colorful blend of Latin and Caribbean styles. Whether one references Dizzy Gillespie's pioneering work, or more recent work efforts in Afro-Cuban jazz, the Caribbean Jazz Project seems comfortable exploring and stretching the genre. Although the band's lineup has continued to evolve on Birds of a Feather, vibraphonist Dave Samuels, trumpeter Ray Vega, percussionist Robert Quintero, drummer Dafnis Prieto, and bassist Ruben Rodriguez remain from the original incarnation. A number of guests, including trumpeter Randy Brecker, guitarist Romero Lubambo, and drummer Mark Walker help fill out the arrangements. With all of the high profile talent here, it's important to remember that Birds of a Feather worries less over standout solos than the overall tapestry. Lubambo offers a lovely lead in Herbie Hancock's "Tell Me a Bed Time Story," while Samuels' vibe solo shines in "Minor Mood," but in both cases the instrumental work is carefully woven into the overall fabric that is the Caribbean Jazz Project. The Project also explore Charles Mingus' "Weird Nightmare," along with a number of Samuels' originals. While it's impossible to guess if this disc will receive the same Grammy winning attention as The Gathering, fans will nonetheless be treated to the same enticing Latin mix they've come to expect from the band.
