Album Notes
Shlomy & Rami Alster

After years of playing together it seems that a unique sound is emerging, especially because of our strong connection to wind instruments and the variety of music we are influenced by. Our style moves from the familiar to the more complex and experimental pieces, while still maintaining our uniqueness in the more 'familiar' pieces.

Since 1995 we have founded many combos, some of them standard (saxophone, trombone, bass, drums, piano or guitar) and some more unusual such as four saxes, trombone and drums or a horn sextet and drums.

In these bands we play original music or unique arrangements to standards – Blues, Be Bop, Hard Bop, Latin Jazz, Funky, Ballads, Modal, a combination of Jewish and Arab music with Jazz, and experimental pieces which are less defined stylistically. Our music is both instrumental and vocal.

Recently we have finished our Latin Jazz disc. A very versatile disc which consists of pieces influenced by different Latin styles: Brazilian (Bossa Nova, Samba, Capoeira) Afro-Cuban (Mambo, Cha-Cha-Cha) and more abstract modern Latin Jazz. Each piece has a different story, its own sound, and yet, there is also, an overall sound to the whole disc, a distinct fingerprint to the whole project.
THere are 12 tracks on the disc (about 79:30 minutes long) 3 of them with vocals.
The CD was reviewed in ITA journal (International Trombone Association) Volume 43#1 (January 2015) -
Here are some highlits from the review:
"Rami and Shlomy Alster lead multiple configurations of musicians through this musical voyage."
"Well-crafted arrangements and background lines offer a coheseve presentation throughout the disc.
The Alster brothers composed all of the tracks including lyrics on several tunes."
"Shlomy's trombone playing is solid and stylistically appropriate. He's tone is at times dark and soulful and at times vibrant and energetic. Shlomy's improvisation is conservitive, but always in the groove and within the harmonic confines.
THe most adventurous solos on the CD can be attributed to Rami, especially on Soul Dance and Primordial Jungle."
"The overall presentation... will be a pleasent listen for those who enjoy Latin Jazz music."
Bruce Tychinsky - University of Delawere
