Jazz Ruler Type: Fusion
O’s Notes: Gilfema is Lionel Loueke (vocals, g), Ferenc Nemeth (d) and Massimo Biolcati (b). +2 is Anat Cohen (cl) and John Ellis (b cl, ocarina). They play a mix of fusion with Latin for this set. “LonLon Grin” and “Your World” have Latin beats that provide a change of pace without departing from the central theme. Lionel’s festive scatting and guitar work on “Festa” make it come alive. But the syncopated beats on “Cove”, “Question of Perspective” and “Twins” place them among the best songs of a strong session.
