Savant SCD 2151
Legendary Grammy nominee percussionist Sammy Figueroa has done it again with another outstanding Latin jazz album, combining sophistication and beauty with swinging rhythms on a variety of percussion instruments. Venezuelan composer/musicians Silvano Monasterios (piano) and Gabriel Vivas (bass) have created brilliant compositions that embrace Figueroa's ever-creative rhythmical conversation. Joined by star horn players Troy Roberts (sax) and Alex Pope Norris (trumpet), plus one of today's finest young drummers, David Chiverton, the musicianship level is astounding. This album, Figueroa's fourth, displays a musical maturity and sense of invention that opens up new possibilities for today's Latin jazz.
