Lopez, Ramon  : Drums Solo II Swinging With Doors <i>[Used Item]</i> (Leo)

Label: Leo    
Released in: Great Britain    


"Lopez' new solo album, Drums Solo II: Swinging with Doors, shows the drummer in an entirely different scenario. To put it bluntly, he's improvising to a door. Well, many doors - kitchen doors, station doors, school doors, even sauna doors. The doors, played by Finnish bassist and composer Teppo Hauta-aho, produce long squeaks of varying pitch and tempo. Lopez reacts to the ambiance the doors create, hitting chimes, blowing horns, bowing a cymbal, rolling some curved, rubbery object against some stretched skin; the result is texturally extraordinary. Playful pattering offsets deep, rubbery, torturous tones. They elevate to a rumble before flowing into the hollow sounds of a hand drum on "The Beauty of Life . The metallic, echoey shards created by cymbal hitting cymbal mingle with a quick, primitive patter on "The Godfather of Modern Drumming. Even without doors, Lopez solo merits a listen, but when that gargantuan rumble begins again, you sit up a little bit straighter. It'screepy, that constant, warbling when it slows sounds of a door in need of an oiling. Lopez' counter is downright cheerful in comparison. His method of focusing on a particular sound pattern before moving on results in the formation of a large collection of tiny characters. His narrative is vast and complex, but endearing and somehow, oddly familiar."-Celeste Sunderland, allaboutjazz.com
