CD Reviews

Vintage Bireli
Peter | Florida, USA | 03/22/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's hard to imgine why there are not more reviews of this CD. This recording, or, rather, jam session, is a lot of fun. "Fun" is something that seems to be missing in so many recent jazz recordings. The three extraordinary musicians on this CD are obviously at the top of their game and it really seems like they had a lot of fun making this recording. The playful pairing of guitarist Bireli Lagrene and bassist Dominique Di Piazza reminds me of the now vintage Pat Metheny recording Bright Size Life, in which Pat and bass legend Jaco Pastorius play off of each other's compositions on what has now become a classic jazz guitar recording. Front Page has the same vibe. The same playfulness, the same adventurous spirit, and, in some compositions, it even has the feel of something that could have been recorded in the late seventies--- the funky vibe is definitely there. This recording does, however, have a much harder edge to it than Bright Size Life. While Pat Metheny and Bireli Lagrene have vastly different guitar styles, the edgey feel of this CD comes from the "no holds barred" drummming of Dennis Chambers. This is not a bad thing. Where Bright Size Life is light and airy, Front Page is a bustling freeway. In short, Front Page is full of energy, full of life, and a lot of fun."
Buy Immediately! Instant Fusion Classic

"This album absolutely RIPS. Chambers, Bireli and Di Piazza (basically the greatest drummer, guitar player and bass player alive in the world today) got together for 2 days in 2000 and burned non-stop on a great batch of original tunes. Maybe the greatest Chambers drum solo ever is on this album on the tune DBD. Even John McLaughlin guests on the last track, the only time John & Bireli have recorded together. If you like high-energy, spastic apesheet fusion, you cannot go wrong with this album. Buy it!"
Great guys
Truong Vu Lang | Hochiminh City, NA Viet Nam | 11/07/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is great- jazz, funk and world music blended; needless to mention Dennis, Birery is great,and I have never heard him in this fashion. Listening to this album, one may feel as if this album is made by Birely, but at the same time one is not able to lose attention from Dennis (you know what I mean). Only a bit of a shame that Dominique does not shine much (shining in only a track something). If someone argues that this is because Dominique is on rhythm role, lets check out The Rite of Strings. It would be a perfect album if the three guys shines equally. However, I think this is a MUST for any jazz collectors."
