"Some of the most interesting music I’ve heard in the last 12 months has arrived from Buenos Aires via Matthew Golombisky’s ears&eyes Records label. Now comes “Sendero,” a potent, 36-minute sampler by drummer Axel Filip. The ten cuts, [three are interludes of less than a minute’s duration] are built on a trio of pianist Mariano Sarra and bassist Flavio Romero with Pablo Passini’s guitar, Milton Amadeo and Melina Moguilevsky contributing vocals and an occasional string quartet. Filip’s compositions  are flavored by Guillermo Klein’s restless harmonies (and on “A la inconsciencia” his unselfconscious vocal style), and “Nocturnal” has some of the motoric energy of early Geri Allen. Filip keeps things moving with alertness and intelligence and Sarra is a real find who plays with assurance and style. Filip was a key contributor on Camila Nebbia’s “Aura,” also on ears&eyes. That record cracked my Top Ten last year and “Sendero” is a strong contender to be on the same path this time around" John Chacona

I’m truly impressed, and I’m not that easy to please, especially when it comes to music that is right on the “edge” of creative genius; you will be, too, especially if you love a bit of “adventure” in your listening experience… be sure to SUBSCRIBE to Axel’s YouTube channel, so you can watch many other performances, too… I did. 

I give Axel and his musical partners a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with a perfect “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 5.00… which also means that this album gets my “PICK” for “best 21st Century jazz”.  You’ll find more information on Axel’s website.
