Huáscar Barradas

My Favorite Things
CD (Bridge 64602), Released 2006;
Editor's Pick:
Lovely, wide ranging, melodic Latin jazz by Venezuelan flute player Huáscar Barradas. Barradas takes on jazz, opera (there's quite unconventional interpretation of "Habanera" from Carmen), and popular music like Richard Rogers' "My Favorite Things."
But half of the compositions are original, and Barradas has produced a well-crafted polished project that also makes reference to Venezuelan folklore and incorporates a palette of pan caribbean styles as well. Note the jazz interpretations of "Mereng-Mile," "Rumba En Madrid," and "Serenata Criolla." There is a beautiful cinematic or theatrical feel that is very much part of the fabric of Barradas' work, and it conjures many visual associations. With bassist Elvis Martinez, cuatrista Jorge Polanco, pianist César Orozco, drummer, percussionist Fernando Valladares and many, many others. With guest timbalero Frank Hernandez "El Pavo."
Recommended.
