Product Description

Product Description

--This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.


Born in the Dominican Republic, Michel Camilo's music is rich with Caribbean rhythms that are wedded to engaging harmonic and melodic sensibilities and draw on the whole of jazz over the 20th century. With complex chordal rhythms and melodies that evoke his homeland, Camilo reminds one of both McCoy Tyner and Chick Corea. Besides his own albums, he's also been an important presence on recordings by Paquito D'Rivera. Known for his work in the traditional trio format, Camilo has broadened the scope of the genre via his writing and arrangements, so that the three players take on qualities that are truly orchestral. Cuban drummer Horacio Hernandez and bassist Anthony Jackson are perfectly matched to Camilo's vision. Triangulo dazzles as Camilo's seven new compositions are joined by three well-chosen covers (including Dizzy Gillespie's "Con Alma"). Quietly nestled amidst the propulsive festivities is the gorgeous ballad "Just Like You," which finds all three players excelling at playing less and less, and at the volume of a whisper. --David Greenberger --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars a fine set June 24 2002
Format:Audio CD
mr. camilo is a wonderful latin jazz pianist, but with a different approach than say chu valdes. whereas mr. valdes literally burns up the keyboard, mr. camilo, on this album, takes a lighter approach avoiding the sameness of bossa nova, but with a gentler swing than mr. valdes' eruptions. the nood is more like a warm evening looking over the gulf--the rhythm is there, but it swings like the waves coming in. the orginal tunes shine, but for me the highlights were dizzy gillespie's "con alma" and the haunting, almost nothingness of "just like you." the delicacy leaves leaning toward the speakers to catch every whispered note. enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cooooool, baby, real cool April 18 2002
Format:Audio CD
Yeah, this is a modern jazz recording, but it is a laid-back, sophisticated, mellow modern jazz recording. And none of the pieces gets more mellow than track four, "Afterthought." This is one of those, turn-the-lights-down, take-the-phone-off-the-hook recordings that needs to be listened to as dusk is slowing morphing into nighttime. And the sound? It's great -- you've not heard jazz (or any music, for that matter) until you've heard it on an SACD recording. Telarc's very fine multichannel SACD recording is the absolute best. Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a drummer! Oct. 9 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There's an intense interplay between all three players on Triangulo. Michel Camilo plays with wonderful melodic and harmonic imagination, and truly amazing rhythmic intensity. Team him up with Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez , and explosions occur. He's like Elvin Jones and Tony Williams combined. I loved "On Fire", but this one's astonishing. Not all the numbers are fast , I guess to give you a rest , but when they crank it up it sounds like they might break something. This is a beautiful CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Latin Jazz Triangulo Excites May 18 2002
By Al
Format:Audio CD
Latin jazz is often recorded with large ensembles and heavy percussion-and some of Michel's best recordings have been in this setting. This record, however, is a glimpse at Latin jazz in a trio setting, and these 3 artists offer truly exciting interplay. They unite a focused, intimate approach with startling physicality for a trio. It's important to note that this is not merely a solid Latin or trio record- it's jazz at it's finest; spontaneous and highly expressive.
