International Conspiracy

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
The term "Latin jazz" has usually been used to describe a fusion of jazz and Afro-Cuban music, which includes son, cha-cha, mambo, guaguanc, and many other rhythms that people have been calling "salsa" since the early '70s. But not all great Latin music has an Afro-Cuban orientation; the music of Latin America also includes everything from Venezuelan joropo to Mexican mariachi to Argentinean tango. So if a musician blends jazz with Columbian cumbia -- which is what reedman Greg Ribot does on The International Conspiracy -- you could argue that technically, he/she is playing Latin jazz. However, no one would mistake this CD for a Poncho Sanchez, Dizzy Gillespie, or Cal ...

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
The term "Latin jazz" has usually been used to describe a fusion of jazz and Afro-Cuban music, which includes son, cha-cha, mambo, guaguanc, and many other rhythms that people have been calling "salsa" since the early '70s. But not all great Latin music has an Afro-Cuban orientation; the music of Latin America also includes everything from Venezuelan joropo to Mexican mariachi to Argentinean tango. So if a musician blends jazz with Columbian cumbia -- which is what reedman Greg Ribot does on The International Conspiracy -- you could argue that technically, he/she is playing Latin jazz. However, no one would mistake this CD for a Poncho Sanchez, Dizzy Gillespie, or Cal Tjader recording. While those improvisers are famous for combining jazz with Afro-Cuban rhythms, The International Conspiracy favors a jazz/South American hybrid. Cumbia is the album's most prominent Latin rhythm, and Cumbia del Norte is the name of the band that Ribot a native of Newark, NJ leads on this release. But The International Conspiracy also incorporates elements of Peruvian, Chilean, and Bolivian music. Ribot is no purist; The International Conspiracy isn't straight-ahead jazz any more than it is pure cumbia. Rather, the New Jersey native uses a variety of influences to create instrumental music that is challenging yet high accessible. This CD is recommended to anyone who is seeking something fresh from either jazz or Latin music.
