My Favorite Street
This CD reflects the search of the composer for new, captivating musical ideas as well as his curious ability to show the standard repertoire in the new light. This album balances very well between the ambience of acoustic jazz, electric sounds of Hammond B-3 organ and the verve of ethnically flavoured music. The arrangements are done in a very inventive and intricate way so that each repeated interaction with the music in this album is always a surprise and allows one to appreciate the ensemble work and the arrangerents on a deeper level. FEATURING: Piotr Kowalczyk- voice, rhodes Anthony A. Morris- alto saxophone Rozhan Mohd. Razman- bass Freddie V. Burgos- drums Uziel Colon- piano Year: 2006 Time: 56 minutes REVIEWS: MEETING WITH A SHRINK ------ Wow, the piano sounds very impressionistic in character, my favorite era in classical music. I've always felt that Debussy was the first jazz pianist. Great vocal! Very world sounding chantlike vocal line. Phrygian sounding scale, nice vocal control. Sheez! I'm afraid of listening further, this is TOO good! Serious, but very playful at the same time. Really solid drummer and bassist. Oh, I love the sax and vocal doing the same line, but then it's a total payoff when the split and do some harmonies. Very moving piano solo, rhythmically exciting! Geez! It's still going, a slow part now, really the best yet! Thank all the Gods that there are still great musicians like this around! You guys are a treat for the soul!

I really enjoyed this track, real good mature music. 'Landscapes are memories' wonderful lyrics to go with perfect music.

The arrangement is nice and builds in a very good way. Nice work! Reviewed by: breckerbrothers from Sweden.
