All Music Guide - David Jeffries
If a Nomad is someone who walks all over the globe aimlessly, then Jesse Cook's album is improperly titled. There's nothing aimless about it; Cook's fiery flamenco style is still the heart of it all and he's more in sync with his guests than most new age artists can be. Showing the proper amount of restraint while accompanying the BoDeans or former Rembrandts singer Danny Wilde, Cook gives the pop stars better material and more freedom than they're used to. It's a shame that these wonderful singers haven't gotten this respect before, because their poignant performances here reveal talents that aren't properly showcased in the pop world.

There's nothing aimless about it; Cook's fiery flamenco style is still the heart of it all and he's more in sync with his guests than most new age artists can be.

It's a shame that these wonderful singers haven't gotten this respect before, because their poignant performances here reveal talents that aren't properly showcased in the pop world. Flora Purim gives the light "Maybe" just the right amount of sweetness, and the passionate vocals of Montse Cortes return Cook to his flamenco roots. The truly atmospheric moments are supplied by numerous Egyptian and electronic touches that Cook uses with sincerity and respect. Nomad flows like an album should, with each track complementing the next, and Cook has proven himself a mindful producer. Despite being recorded at stops all over the world and a diverse list of guest stars, Nomad ends up being his most cohesive and rewarding album.

    Absolutely sensual, sexy, and beautiful!!!!!!

    I just found this CD when listening to a world music radio station and I immediately fell in love with Jesse Cook's music. This is'nt what I would normally have listened to, but I'm so glad I did as it opened new doors in music I would have never experienced otherwise. Thanks Jesse, and please keep the CDs coming.

    Honesty

    In all honesty, I can't not think of any musician who is more talented. His music is the most beautiful, I have ever heard.

    His Best Yet

    Great new music from Jesse Cook. I bought it the day before yesterday and it has been in my CD player every since. He is really starting to mature as an artist. I look forward for more to come in the future for a very long time. Highly recommend.

    ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!

    This man is as talented as he is cute! This new cd reaffirms that. Early on Tuesday,is a song I can seriously believe will be a crossover hit for him. Nomad and Leila are powerful pieces as well. Catch him in concert if you can, he's well worth the trip!!!
