ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It has been almost one year since their first release, and although, there were three singles in between, the unveil of this production has been awaited by everyone. This project encompasses the adventurous spirit of this group of musicians who have given all for the sake of music. The creative process took them this time past the limits of traditional swing to foreign lands, full of wonders and expectations, dreams and revelations. Continuing the incorporation of Cuban rhythms and instruments to his music, Raul E Blanco fuses even more the sounds of American jazz with raw sounds from his ancestral culture. The use of bata drums and cowbells are a distinctive feature in the title track "Land of Giants", which also has harmonic and melodic influences from epic games music.
Another feature of the album is the incorporation of vocals in the tunes "Heartbreaker" and "When I Had You".
The track "Timba Reel" is a fusion of Irish reel melodies with Cuban timba rhythms.
As a curiosity, the track "Tang2.718281828459...nt", composed by Noah Austin (trumpet), spells the letter "e" with its numeric value, forming the word "tangent". The melody of this tune is a fun challenge to hear and to play.
As bonus information, all of the artwork and the covers are made by Raul E Blanco who, from time to time, has to depart briefly from music to dive into the mysterious depths of Photoshop :D.
