Product Description:

/Anthony Cox/David Friedman.
Personnel: Dino Saluzzi (bandoneon, vocals, percussion); Anthony Cox (acoustic & electric basses); David Friedman (marimba, vibraphone, percussion).
Recorded at Pricipal Studios, Munster, Germany.
All songs written by Dino Saluzzi and/or David Friedman except "Jad" (Anthony Cox), "And He Loved His Brother Til The End" (unknown) and "My One And Only Love" (Wood/Mellin).
Because Dino Saluzzi is an Argentine who plays the bandoneon, it is inevitable to compare him to Astor Piazolla. This comparison is unfair, however, because if Saluzzi is playing tango, it is so abstracted and transformed that we may as well just call it jazz. If a better comparison is sought it would be to another international jazz musician like Renaud Garcia-Fons.
On Rios, Saluzzi plays with American bassist Anthony Cox and American vibist and arranger David Friedman, a musician who's run the gamut from Yoko Ono to Disney soundtracks. Together they play an assortment of tunes by members of the group, about half of them Saluzzi's, plus the one cover "My One and Only Love." The numbers are thoughtful but not flashy. Friedman's "Penta y Uno" is largely a deconstruction of bossa nova and tango, featuring percussion as well as vibes. Cox's "Jad" uses weird effects from the instruments and the occasional Arabic motif to build up to a subdued bop frenzy. Other tracks are more straight-ahead combinations of the primary instruments.
This is music for the patient and thoughtful listener. Competent but not destined to be a classic. ~ Kurt Keefner
