ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jose Roman Duque brings us new compositions after a 7 yrs hiatus of no new personal projects. But it was worth the wait. Coproducing with his friend Erik Aldrey, ( a fabulous Engineer, Mixer and Producer. Grammy-nominated, who has worked with Amigos Invisibles, Bacilos, Duran Duran, Arctic Monkeys, and many more) Jose gathered some of the musicians that have played with him in the past and some new ones to come up with an amalgam of powerful driven tunes that defy classification. At times Rock, At times, Jazz, Funk, World Music, and even Electronica, all this gives this album a complete rounded concept. Whereas is Manu Koch amazing piano playing, or Jon Durant (Burnt Belief guitarist wizard), or the haunting voice of Beatriz Malnič, or oven Jose's own playing. Composing the music, playing drums, keyboards, piano, bass and even voice on some of the tracks. It will be upon the listener to classify this style of music. Jose claims there is lots of jazz in it, but also pulsating rock force and aggressive nature, world rhythms echoing some Flamenco from Cadiz, or Venezuelan's Rhythms from the eastern coast. Somehow all those incongruent styles find a home in this project. Enjoy!

Joe Simes

Jazz/Fusion & Progressive Rock an amazing collection of music.
Do you like Jazz or maybe Progressive Rock or maybe you just like good music without a label. Jose Duque's new album JORODU will hit all the notes in whatever your taste in music might be and it might just pique your interest in something new as well. And that is certainly a good thing. If you dig this music and you are unfamiliar with Jose's back catalog you should definitely check out his Latin Jazz/Fusion ensemble Zumbatres or maybe his Ambient/Electronic album Roman(US).

Diverse, Melodic and Fun.
Jose is an amazing drummer/composer. When composing a song, most musicians tend to favor their instruments so that they get more play time. Jose does not. You can hear every instrument get their time in the spotlight. Listen to Jon Durant's solo on Nulla Habeo Nomen, it harkens back to the days of classic YES. This album is a perfect listen on a Sunday midmorning with a brunch cocktail in hand.

Enjoy...

Diverse, Melodic and Fun!
Jose is an amazing drummer and composer. Like any great musician/writer, Jose does not focus on his main instrument but rather lets other instruments take center stage. The production is top notch and the diversity of the songs will keep you on an adventurous 9 track ride. This LP screams Sunday morning brunch with a few stiff cocktails and friends.
