Album Notes

This long awaited 8th album by Colombian singer songwriter and guitarist Claudia Gomez, features mostly original songs performed in an acoustic setting of diverse Duets (bandoneon, guitar, and voice; piano and voice; clarinet, trombone and voice, etc), with powerful melodies and lyrics in a unique blend of Colombian Andean music with shades of Jazz, Brazilian and Latin-American colors.

Colombian and Jazzy feeling
“Eres el azul, que soñó mi mañana gris… arco iris luz, presagio de un amanecer…”
(”You’re the blue, that my grey morning dreamed about……… rainbow light ,the omen of a breaking dawn….”)
With this poetic lines thrown to the wind and a brilliant chord, the accomplice sound is broken, that sound that exists since the silver disk gets in the player and starts playing, I could only hold my breath until the music gave me permission the breath without damaging that experience.
Without any doubt, one of the best works that have passed through my hands, a valuable and fantastic exploration, not only of our beautiful Colombian rhythms, but of our feeling, with a unique maturity in the harmonization of lyrics and music, which slowly, and note after note build the great puzzle that is this work.
There is a lot to talk in this job; starting with the music, which itself, is a tribute to our beautiful Andean-Colombian culture, and also is a great example that less is more, it’s amazing how Claudia Gómez achieves with four chords, with a lament, and with an harmony change, to draw (if that word can be used) a pasillo, a bambuco, a guabina, actually this is one of the most important elements of this work, the surprise factor using the accumulated talent of years, which makes impossible to predict the end of a tune, or a rhythm or a melodic twist, will it be a soprano sax lament?, will it be a heartrending guitar chord? Or a lament of her experienced voice? , which allow her to play her strings as she wants.
Each song is a universe itself and it’s perceived in each of them an evolution and maximum care, in its form and style, I couldn’t refer to everything, since the friendly reader should make his or her own discovery, and with that enrich his or her spirit, however yielding to the temptation of sharing my appreciations I will mention four themes that I modestly consider gems inside the gems.
“Pasillo Cruzao” this song with a purity and refinement which contrast with its wonderful simplicity, with undeniable Jazz influences, in it´s harmonic and formal treatment, achieves something that its only achieved by the best themes of our Colombian sound book, to warm up the soul and please the spirit. Something that was dominated by the masters Francisco Cristancho and Oriol Rangel Rangel among others, it’s now achieved by Claudia Gómez, in one format where Colombian guitar and folk instrumentation like the spoons are mixed, with a very modern contrabass, a jazz drums and an exact, clean and precise scat, one fresh idea that makes a new contribution to the Andean-Colombian song book.
Each Track slowly prepares the listener, towards the theme that is called, “De amores profundos” (from deep loves), which again impacts for its modern confection, and treatment, specially percussive, that contrast with this magnificent lyric; universal, timeless, close, almost Discepolian (related with Enrique Discepolo, Tango poet and composer), "cuando te enamoras todo es diferente......te duermes sonriendo, despiertas cantando"(When you fall in love everything is different ……….you sleep smiling ,and wake up singing) , I wonder ….Who hasn’t felt this once in life?, this magnificent creation is the contribution of the great master and lyricist from Antioquia: Sonia Martinez, who throws her feeling to the air to be beautifully captured by the music created by Claudia.
How elaborated can be a Guabina? , if there is one argument that is used frequently by the detractors of the Andean-Colombian music, it’s just this; it’s simple music, easy music, light; well, this theme “Guabina Veleña”, puts on discussion one more time, this lie disguised as a truth. The a capella treatment for this tune, with dissonant and modern harmonies drew on a blank canvas, it surprises in every turn , the careful management of the technique (vocalization and breathing) and vocal effects, once more enrich the pure lyric, calm and without pretentions, lyrics that makes the work in general a piece of hidden wealth waiting to be found.
Getting to the end of the work, more than satisfied, when I believe that all the cards and arguments have been shown and no surprise awaits for me, arrives the inspiring Guabina “Lluvia de acordes”(Cord rain) theme with a strong influence from Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel and Francis Poulenc, that retakes the search that others great masters like Luis A. Calvo y Gentil Montaña started, remaking a decorated bridge to the old continent; its equally impressive lyric´s with metaphors accompanied with hard to forget tunes, which go really great which so much harmonic and musical beauty.
There are no enough lines and time, to applaud this job, and those who were part of it, musicians, lyricists, graphic artists, producers and collaborators in general. To all of them and of course to Claudia Gómez, thanks to enliven the flame of patriotism in the middle of so much chaos and environmental noise.
I want to invite everybody to enjoy this great work, without a doubt marks an important milestone in the musical becoming of our beloved land, all the themes; from
“Azul” (Blue) to “El Bambuco del Adiós” (The Goodbye Bambuco) and “Sonríe” (Smile) (wining theme of the Festival del pasillo en Aguadas 2012), they have a reason to be, they have a spirit, a soul.
And although the work is a tribute to Lula, the Claudia’s loyal canine partner, I think that actually it’s dedicated to love and the feelings that it includes; joys, sadness, yearnings, memories and even pain, which are framed in beautiful Andean rhythms with a unique respect and dedication, that shapes this huge treasure that fits in one beautifully illustrated 12 x 12 envelope, but doesn’t fit in the heart!
