Overview

Flutist/saxophonist Jorge Pardo serves up a rather different buffet of genre-hopping music here, mixing jazz solos with flamenco-rooted acoustic guitar and an amalgam of ever-shifting and blending flamenco, African, Caribbean, Cuban, and minimalist rhythms. Pardo's soprano sound displays some of the wandering qualities of Ornette Coleman, indeed he even includes a snippet of Coleman's "Law Years," and you would hardly notice any difference between that and the surrounding material. His flute playing is more focused in direction, sometimes breathy, always rhythmically adept, and he turns in some dusky-toned tenor licks as well. Occasionally the flamenco element rises up and predominates, particularly when dancer Joaquin Grilo goes into action amidst Andalusian handclapping and vocals, and Agustín Carbonell "El Bola" supplies the sturdy flamenco guitar throughout the record. The record cruises along like a suite, with 21 separate tracks tied together into four run-on medleys. Without looking at the complex track listing, the best way to tell when one medley ends and another begins is when Pardo switches instruments. World music fans will be most likely to check this out, but so should jazz buffs who like varied rhythmic foundations.
