Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

GRP (GABRIEL RIESCO PROJECT)

Sculptures in Time

2010-02-20

Considering that both music and sculpting utilize the concepts of space, limited by form...blah, blah, blah...this album is a tribute to sculptor Eduardo Chilada, according to the liner notes. This is instrumental jazz, not unlike something you would hear on your weekly smooth jazz radio show or at your coffee shop. Originally from Spain, guitarist, Gabriel Riesco,, has surrounded himself with able musicians from all over the world and who encompass loads of credentials. The musicianship here is admirable, but there is nothing the least bit challenging about this release, except the liner notes, of course. Rebecca Ruth
