Live at the Blue Note

There's been plenty of talk about the contemporary Latin jazz renaissance in 2003. A new generation of players is making big noise on the scene, proudly incorporating rhythms from Cuba, the Caribbean, and South America with native-born jazz idioms. To the Dominican-born pianist and composer Michel Camilo, this must all be old news. A virtuoso improviser whose way with jazz harmony and classical themes is as spot-on as his ease with the rhythmic contours of Latin music, Camilo has been at the forefront of the pan-cultural fusion for two decades now. His first live recording finds the dexterous keyboardist in typical form: that is, smoking from note one. Supported by the masterful drummer Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez and bassist Charles Flores, Camilo brings 16 of his own compositions to vivid life. (Three standards -- "Tequila" and a medley of "Happy Birthday" and "Blue Bossa" -- are the sole non-originals). The trio lineup belies the staggering volume of music making of which these three are capable. Throughout, Camilo displays his fleet wizardry and agile rhythmic acuity, sprinkling spice about intricate arrangements that recall everything from Romantic piano to Thelonious Monk. An earthy sophisticate, Camilo has plenty to teach the new kids on the block.
