5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than just another cocktail jazz album, 3 Feb. 2005

This review is from: Land of the Sun (Audio CD)
Hypnotic, relaxing jazz but still challenging enough to satisfy real jazz fans. Beautiful arrangements of delightful melodies and masterful musicianship. Charlie Haden has a remarkable talent for taking folk and ethnic traditional and modern music and re-framing it in a jazz context. Buy it, you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars No artificial embelishments, 19 Mar. 2010

Charlie Haden assembles an impressive lineup of musicians for this sensitively delivered project. Together they don't transform the Mexican ballads into jazz per se, but rather use them as an entry into a compellingly intuitive exchange between the musicians. The overall effect is a deeply sophisticated and refined interpretation of songs that couldn't be shown more respect than on this highly recommended and magic album.

Personnel:

Joe Lovano , alto saxophonist Miguel Zenon, flautist Oriente Lopez , trumpeter/flugelhornist Michael Rodriquez, and guitarists Larry Koonse and Lionel Louke

This is very cool jazz, beautifully produced, mellow yet animated at the same time. Excellent. One thing - you do need a good sound system to really get the nuances.
