Adventurous Barcelona pianist Jaume Vilaseca shows just how well Genesis songs lend themselves to innovative jazz arrangements. His enthusiasm for these new interpretations has resulted in two volumes, leading a trio and quartet, though in both instances the small ensembles are occasionally augmented by other instruments.
Reedición del álbum “Per sempre, Tete” grabado en la Jazz Cava de Terrassa el 6 de Marzo de 1997, durante el concierto celebrado dentro del XVI Festival internacional de Jazz de Terrassa con el genio barcelonés Tete Montoliu al piano, Horacio Fumero al contrabajo y Peer Wyboris a la batería. Interpretan dos suites, la primera en memoria de Thelonius Monk bautizada como ‘Monkiana’ y la segunda ‘Pensando en Coltrane’. Presentado en formato de digipack cuadrado desplegable, a modo de mini replica de vinilo, incluyendo un libreto de 12 páginas con textos en español e inglés.
The blind Catalonian pianist Tete Montoliu is in great form on this 1977 session recorded in Spain, accompanied by bassist Eric Peter and drummer Peer Wyboris. He shows off his tremendous chops in a roller coaster treatment of the bittersweet ballad "You've Changed," then switches to a jaunty mood for a brisk treatment of "It Could Happen to You." Wyboris kicks off the thunderous take of Jimmy Heath's "Jimmy's Tempo," a passionate hard bop vehicle. But the primary focus of this CD consists of four original blues penned by the pianist. It seems likely that at least some of them were improvised on the date, though "Blues for Coltrane" seems to draw inspiration from the late tenor saxophonist's rapid-fire live solos that left little open space. "Blues for Myself," the centerpiece of the release, seems closely related to "You've Changed," though the chord progressions do vary. Released by the Spanish label Ensayo, this disc is worth acquiring.
