Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

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 His best ever! July 3 2002
Format:Audio CD
The interplay with Horacio and Anthony is simply superb. Relaxed but with plenty detail, this record its truly a genuine work of art, the result of a well honed process towards maturity...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not his best. July 2 2002
Format:Audio CD
Michel Camilo is one of the best pianist I have ever heard. But in this work he could do better. Compaired with some of his early work, this is a little sub-par.

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!
