JAZZ: Latin Jazz, LATIN: Latin Jazz
Chembo Corniel has been on the front lines for over three decades – in the Salsa trenches of New York’s cuchifrito circuit where the competition is stiff. His rock-solid tumbaos and beautiful sound on the conga drums has made him one of the most in-demand sidemen and studio musicians in New York over the past three decades. But Chembo’s recently put on a new hat – that of the bandleader – and he’s come out of the gate hitting hard with his power-packed Latin Jazz ensemble, Chaworó, top shelf Nuyorican streetwise sabor, fresh and funky and respectful of its
considerable roots. In the city that invented the Latin percussionist/bandleader (Tito, Mongo, Candido, Ray Barretto, Kako, Orlando Marín, Willie Bobo, Joe Cuba, Orestes Vilato, etc.), you''ve got to come correct because the public expects no less.
Chembo delivers with “For The Rest Of Your Life”, his second stellar offering by Chaworó, an exciting combination of groove and improv with a burning cast of NY stalwarts at his side. For those that appreciate the fact that Latin Jazz is not one-dimensional, this CD is a breath of fresh air. The band cuts loose on top of masterfully manipulated rhythms such as mambo, rumba de cajón, guaguancó, bomba, abacuá, bolero, chachachá,
batá, songo, and straight ahead jazz. The different tempos and moods remind us of the elegance and power of Latin Jazz when interpreted through the hands of real maestros. It is creative, eye-opening, and unpredictable, true
to the free spirit of Jazz, and to the rhythmic alchemy of it''s African percussive and choreographic origins.
