Fascinating compositions2 Feb. 2008

Roberto is a very creative musician, not necessarily charismatic, yet very versatile in his command of the piano. The personnel on this record is outstanding, the sound is clean and crisp. The cover art made me think that this was a wild improvisational collection of music, the opposite is true. Annet Marina, for example, starts off slow, light and airy with some female vocals thrown in for good measure, then gets a tad more heavy with drums and keyboard for about 30 seconds until it ends almost as light as it started. The other songs are similarly easily digestible with occasional guitar, a good dose of drums and percussion, some guitar and sax. Variety is the key here. I would have given it a five if we heard more from Roberto himself.
