Wilson "Chembo" Corniel

Afro Blue Monk
CD (American Showplace Music 24922), Released 2012;
Editor's Pick:
Best of 2012 Award Winner

Most certainly one of the finest Latin jazz releases from 2012 comes from New York percussionist Wilson "Chembo" Corniel, who consistently releases albums that are filled with modern elements, but with strong ties to Afro Latin tradition, and jazz history as well. Add an esthetic that tinges on the blue and what you have is a personal statement that endures; we stop and listen. And listen again.  This work, a follow-up to his Grammy nominated Things I Wanted to Do pays homage to icons Thelonius Monk and Mongo Santamaria. Mongo's daughter, Ileana Santamaria is a guest vocalist. Travis Rogers of JazzTimes said it right: “I was captured from the opening bars of the first track and was relentlessly but delightedly held until the very end. There is integrity and exploration to be found here… and so much beauty.” Indeed. Highly Recommended. (BP, 2012-09-16)
