That was goodAllAboutJazz: “....Tenor saxophonist and composer Felipe Salles… had extensive conversations with each of the guest musicians…. before composing the pieces on which each would be featured. The result is a polychromatic, adventurous album that allows Salles' multidimensionality as a composer to flourish. And with top-shelf guests such as saxophonists Melissa Aldana and Paquito D'Rivera, and trumpeter Nadje Noordhuis in the lineup, the results are as fulfilling as one would expect.”
This is Felipe’s ~10th album since 2004. His 2022 release Tiyo’s Songs Of Life, was recommended upthread here.
The entire album is performed live in the studio, YouTube video playlist, with some songs still to be added to complete the full album. Here's the tune with Paquito D'Rivera. It's a bit long, but hey, can you ever have too much Paquito? Please enjoy s'more nice, new, jazz.
