Everything Pablo Ablanedo does sounds Big. And Ablanedo makes the achievement of the epic appear effortless.  His songs have a persona that present themselves as music of a noble grandeur, of music that attains great heights with a graceful ease and a fluid motion.  As such, his newest recording,ReContraDoble, elicits thrilling shifts in anticipation, encapsulating the expansive in a way that exposes the beauty residing in the tiny details. Bird is the Worm (US)

The album shows a mature composer, who creates wonderfully personal expressions while leaving ample room for the improvisational identities of his band members.  There’s a deep rooted sense of tradition within the music that is balanced by a forward looking feeling; this is some powerful stuff worth hearing. By chip Boaz, The Latin Jazz Corner (US) - Octet(o) on FaceBook - ReContraDoble CD site
