    Tomas Michaud - New World Flamenco Jazz
    Starland Music

    By: MuzikMan
    Mar 23, 2004

    Artist: Tomas Michaud (www.worldmelodies.com)
    Title: New World Flamenco Jazz
    Label: Starland Music

    New World Flamenco Jazz... it certainly is a thought provoking way to describe your music. Tomas Michaud is a masterful guitar player on 12 Latin jazz compositions that you will enjoy on his latest release. You may not have heard of his name mentioned in the same sentence as world-renowned artists such as Al Di Meola or Airto, although I see no reason why that is not a possibility in the near future based on what I just heard. Michaud will get the respect of his peers due to his outstanding artisanship and the technical expertise that he commands with his acoustic guitar.

    I now understand after several listens why he chose the title of the album. The new world aspect comes into play with the modern sounds of the various keyboards and saxophones implemented to give it that very character and worldly flavor. In many instances when a soloist plays flamenco guitar, that is the only instrument that you hear, while Michaud could easily perform in that context, he prefers to use the many tools and instruments at his disposal for a fruitful full sound that pulls the listener in without ever letting go. Admittedly, I have a penchant for Latino jazz and feel a certain kinship and connection to the genre and the culture, which I really have no explanation as to why except that I know it makes me feel so good when I listen to it.
