Barcelona in 48 Hours
Travel, dislocation, empty train stations and the cultural mix of Barcelona all influence the wide-ranging music on this CD, the soundtrack to the film 'Barcelona in 48 Hours.' Sounds from North Africa and Latin America to Jungle and the night-time wail of a surf guitar all find their way in this musical journey. Featuring a cast of stellar New York City musicians including Kevin Norton, Doug Wieselman, Charlie Giordano, Sam Bardfeld, Seido Salifoski and Michaël Attias. 'An intriguing tone poem that repays repeated listening.... Ratliff's method of theme and reiterations (rather than variations) recalls Gato Barbieri's soundtrack for Last Tango in Paris." The Guardian 'Fetching, globe-trotting, and insatiably romantic, [this is] a record that entrances within seconds, begs you to get involved, and ages with grace.' AllAboutJazz.com.
