CD Reviews

From top to bottom, Gato's best ever! Bravo!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Gato seems to be getting better with age. From top to bottom, this may be his best work ever, with all due respect to "Caliente" and my all-time favorite song "Europa". This album connects with the soul, letting us feel Gato's many moods and musical influences, and his nostalgic return to his native Argentina. I truly enjoyed the percussion sounds in "Encounter" and the beautiful violins in "Auld Lang Syne" ... but make no mistake about it, Gato's distinctive and melodic tenor sax once again shows why he has no equal. Bravo, Gato!"
Beautiful; his most poignant release ever
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When it comes to expressing himself through his music, Gato Barbieri has never been one to hold back and Che Corazon is no exception. In fact, I think this may be his most poignant release ever, a point emphasized by his inclusion of a wonderful series of family photos in the liner notes. In my opinion, "Cristiano" is the most beautiful song he has written since "She Is Michelle." Its joyful exuberance gives Che Corazon a very beautiful and strong start. But this album is alternately exultant and wistful, and it is this combination that makes it so very poignant. The collaboration with Chuck Loeb gives a very nice, fresh feeling to the music, especially where Loeb has guitar solos, like on 1812, which I love. For me the absence of drum machines gives it a much crisper quality than Que Pasa had, and really helps emphasize the beauty of the melodies and arrangements that Gato and Chuck Loeb have created. If you enjoyed Que Pasa, you will probably love Che Corazon."
Great. Best of '99 Smooth Jazz
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Gato...hit or miss in my opinion. I love this CD. It's more than smooth. It's slick and very sexy. I have never gotten so into a CD as i was with this. I have the cheesy 70's material from him, and it pales immensely next to this music. I love everything with the exception of the bad version of Auld Lang. It just doesnt fit. I love the song Blue Eyes. It takes me to Argentina, and puts a colorful fruit drink in my hands. It makes me feel like i'm standing under a waterfall. How can any song do that you ask? Listen to this one and find out for yourself. Enjoy it. This disc might be the last one to take you on such a least from this artist. A-"
