They Call Me Big New York, featuring Christian de Mesones on bass.
Are you in the mood for some sweet, upbeat smooth jazz? Bassist Christian De Mesones has assembled a talented collection of musicians and brings us a ten-song playlist (most of them his own compositions) that will raise your spirits.
The music weaves percussion, vocals, horns, keys, and strings into a rich tapestry that reminisces the socio-cultural make up of the Big Apple. As you would expect, there is a generous helping of Latin flare and Funk in that mixture that makes it tasty. Christian treats us to a fair amount of his solo playing, but he is the consummate keeper of the groove that will keep you tapping your toes the entire time you listen.
It could be a coincidence that I listened to this album on a Friday afternoon but it put me in the mood to get the weekend fun started. Let the good times roll!
