Mario Caribe Quartet with David Berkman – ‘Hands On’

Recorded live in a converted Victorian school building, this album features New York Jazz pianist David Berkman as a special guest playing along Mario’s regular Quartet which is constituted of Scotland’s lead musicians guitarist Kevin Mackenzie, saxophonist Martin Kershaw and drummer Tom Gordon.

Because the recording was made without separation the sound is that of a live concert, vibrant and dynamic, true to the very nature of improvised music.
The compositions, 9 of them originals, form a mosaic of diverse moods and styles serving as vehicles for these great improvisers to explore their creativity but without neglecting the importance of melodic appeal or musical structure.

The result is a Jazz album that swings, flirts with Folk, visits the New Orleans March tradition and the reflective nature of Bossa-Nova as well as the limitless freedom of collective improvisation. It features great solos, haunting melodies and it is engaging from the opening track to the final Piano & Double Bass duet.

 

Reviews

 

26/09/2010 Rob Adams

‘Mario Caribe is a bassist for hire, which means he lends sureness of touch and musicality to myriad musical styles and configurations. And while this, his second as a leader, is essentially a jazz album, the versatility that finds him playing Scottish and Irish traditional music, klezmer, tango and jazz across the spectrum shines through.

It helps that Caribe is such a gifted composer, capturing something of his fellow Brazilian Tom Jobim’s melodic longing, giving a jig a jazz twist, wittily aping the New Orleans marching tradition and encapsulating the beautifully undulating track out to Bunnahabhain distillery - and his band, including ultra-classy New York – based pianist David Berkman, respond marvelously.

The session’s bright, buoyant, live quality enhances music that’s seriously attractive, and although the freely improvised ‘Life Cycle of a Rough Idea’ may require some patience, the contributions of Martin Kershaw, especially on clarinet, will bring their own reward.’
