Latin Jazz Virtuosity

"My first taste of Michel Camilo came years ago when I heard One More Once playing in a local music store. I liked what I heard and bought it but then forgot about him until last year when I picked up both of his excellent Tomatito collaborations. Those had me so excited, I didn't hesitate to order Spirit of the Moment as soon as I saw it had been released.
If you haven't heard Camilo before, you are in for a treat here. This is pure Latin jazz virtuosity. If Camilo had strayed from his roots over the years, you'd never know it when you hear Spirit of the Moment.
Though I like most of the CD, I mostly prefer the uptempo pieces. My favorites are: the splendid opener Just Now; the delicious title cut; the thrilling Repercussions; the Miles Davis/Bill Evans composition Nardis, which carries a whiff of Spain on its notes; and the ever-changing Trilogy.
Spirit of the Moment represents a successful return to the jazz trio format for Camilo and his group. Note that I give it four stars only because it starts very strongly and finishes on a weak note. A closing tune of the caliber of Just Now or the title cut would have sent this soaring into five-star territory.
If you are a fan of either Latin jazz or piano jazz in any way, I strongly recommend this CD. You'll find yourself enjoying this over and over."
Como siempre...As always!!!!!

"Como siempre, Michel me sorprende con su estilo , su sonido , sus composiciones y sus arreglos. Tengo que decir que Camilo es un virtuoso extraordinario y que por tal razon no deberia sorprenderme con sus magnificas ejecuciones, pero es que creo que cada vez se supera a si mismo. Es como un buen vino...mejora con el tiempo.
Este es un gran CD para oir y disfrutar con tranquilidad. Es la mejor manera de apreciar sus ejecuciones.
Esto es Jazz del mejor."
