Gallo, Ricardo Tierra de Nadie
The Great Fine Line
Label: Clean Feed
Released in: Portugal
"Known for his partnerships with Ray Anderson and Peter Evans, Colombian expatriate Ricardo Gallo is becoming a noteworthy voice as a pianist and composer in American creative jazz.
After obtaining critical acclaim with his Bogotá bands, in "The Great Fine Line" we find him in the company of some of the finest performers on the scene - trombonist Ray Anderson, bassist Mark Helias, saxophonist Dan Blake, percussionist Satoshi Takeishi and drummer Pheroan AkLaff. All of them great improvisers, and all of them capable of the best interpretations of refined compositions, written by a jazz musician clearly interested in the contemporary classical tradition, at the same time incorporating elements of his native Latin American culture.
The project Tierra de Nadie is inspired in a phrase of the novelist Julio Cortazar, stating that music is a no man's land, a territory where the "fine line" separating genres and national/racial identities is getting blurrier. The result is a sort of imaginary folklore, reflecting the present day global condition of this music we call jazz. A refreshing, exquisite and hot-driven CD."-Clean Feed
