Bam!! Kapow!!! Right in your face!!!! Jazz pianist Bill O'Connellcreates for us a fusion/bebop oriented project, & he bares it all. The strings adder is a agreeable counterpoint to his horn lines, (which Bill is adept at creating), as he unfolds his originals for our edification. Randy Brecker-Trumpet, & Bob Malach-Tenor Sax offer their craft as well only enhancing Bill's brainchild. Kudos to O'Connell's signature original, 'Latin Jazz Fantasy.' It seems O'Connell possesses that unique gift to write into an idiom (in this case Latin), with a sense of transcendence . This is a jazz pianist with immense 'player power' as it were. The range of his artistic spectrum seems limitless, and I suggest that my readers will be moved by this colossus of musical dignity and improvisational authority.
