Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

FERNANDO OTERO

Pagina de Beunos Aries

2008-02-16

Argentinean composer Fernando Otero has been actively recording for over a decade. Crossing many musical boundaries, this album features references to classical, pop and, of course, jazz. The songs range from solo compositions, such as “Preludio 19,” to a spattering of trios highlighting cello accompaniment, to a full 25-piece orchestra. Otero blends Latin rhythms with classical elements in a syncopated jump of exploration. Vague references here to the jazz style of Thelonious Monk with odd time signatures and cadences. If you’re interested in trying something a little fringe, this might be worth checking out. -- Daniel J. Graeber
