Danilo Pérez Providencia · Chance Accidental Shrines · The Shivas Freezing To Death
If anyone needed further proof that pianist/composer Danilo Pérez represents a beacon for the future of jazz, Providencia should do the trick. Embracing classical, jazz and folkloric traditions, Pérez roots his multifaceted compositions—whether through-composed or freely improvised—in the human experience. It’s tragic love, the wonder of a child, the will to a better future that animate him—never music for music’s sake. Nine original tunes and two standards are performed by a variety of combos, from a small chamber group to a sax/piano duet. Alto saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa, whose angular, urgent playing fills every note, deserves special mention. (MM)
