Album Notes
A dialogue of Philippine traditional southeast Asian heritage and their western heritage, set in contemporary jazz, Bob Aves
releases his new album "Out Of Tradition" which feature his main instrument, the Philippine Octavina guitar.

Bob Aves is a well-traveled, multitasking artist who delves into a divergent scope of activities. The Berklee School of Music graduate subsequently ventured into film scoring and here fuses Philippine indigenous music with Western jazz.

Aves blends Indo-jazz with traditional Filipino folk music and mainstream jazz grooves. He's a fluid soloist when performing on his acoustic Octavina guitar, complementing western jazz idioms and traditional gongs melodies. The music relies heavily on the integration of gongs, which percussionists use in various implementations for multihued timbral effects.

Aves does offer genial, indigenous translations and a concise snapshot of counterbalancing styles which coalesce into a wondrously conceived series of works. It's an East meets West mindset, awash with intrigue and endearing melodies and textures.
