Info for Por El Mar
Led by Ordoñez’s guitar, relaxed lounge grooves enthrall and captivate the listeners. Josete Ordoñez leaves you with a nice feeling of deceleration, of slowing down. „Por El Mar' feels like the pleasure of drinking a Pina Colada after a swim in the warm sea on an unforgettable holiday.
It would be easy to dismiss at first blush Josete Ordoñez's music as smooth jazz or Nuevo Flamenco aimed at the masses. But there is a deeper maturity to the music on his CD 'Por El Mar' than might be initially appreciated by a cursory listen. Finely-honed production details and masterful guitarwork are the stamp on this CD of Spanish jazz excellence. Ordoñez melds influences from other cultures by incorporating the Vietnamese Dantú and the Mexican Vihuela into these tracks. 'Hanoi' begins dramatically with ominous reverberations underscored by Vietnamese singer Nsut Song Tao's ghostly incantations, but then resolves into a reassuring foray into a beautiful Brazilian-inflected melody. The title track 'Por El Mar' likewise is introduced by novel sounds: children playing in the waves on the beach. The expectations of formulaic smooth jazz strains which follow on 'Por El Mar' explode away, however, when Ana Salazar's vocals impart an impassioned urgency to the surprising culmination. On 'Cinco,' Ordoñez and Salazar's vocals are reminiscent of Mark Ledford and David Blamires' twinned vocals with the Pat Metheny Group, as are the keyboards of Iñaki Quijano, who here sounds as though he's been listening to Lyle Mays quite a lot. Fans of the Pat Metheny Group or The Rippingtons will find a lot to like on 'Por El Mar.' (www.minor7th.com)
