QUINTETO COVA VILLEGAS - Free Space CR12
QUINTETO COVA VILLEGAS – Free Space
Clamshell Records. Serie Vector.
Cova Villegas’s voice carries the music on this album: a shameless approach to the art of cover versions, pulling off impossible renditions created at will by the band, in their own terms. This isn’t a typical jazz record, it’s not even a free jazz album; though created on such foundations, this creature goes beyond all this. It is a true avant-garde gem with all instruments in the right place, where all improvisations settle in, in perfect harmony.
