Instant Depth into Afro-Class
Gerardo Martinez Casas | San Miguel de Cozumel, Quintana Roo, México | 08/02/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In a Silent Way, Miles and Zawinul went into classic music via Austria with a jazz overtone that broke all the standing rules driven by the consciousness movement in the Usa and around the waking world. Afro-Classic feeds of that idea and shows the music world that mixing is a welcome idea as long as it is done by the rules of international compositions and sounds. Hubert after all before classical, was a jazz musician that went World before it's time with Mongo Santamaria. An excellent adventure into compositional magic going into a realm that Jean Pierre Rampal tried but could not soul. A dinner favorite in my realm of tasty music."
