David Sánchez: Carib - Album Review (featured artist on the WOTW soundtrack)
The words “profoundly beautiful” are often used to describe works of art, but often some works appear to give new meaning to those words – like the music on this album Carib by David Sánchez, for example. The album comes two and a half decades after his recording debut, The Departure(Sony/Legacy). Granted that an artist often dips his biographical brush into much of what he does – or at least casts his mind back to what forms experiential content – but Carib does this in a much more thoughtful – even philosophical – manner. Themes and content meld seamlessly on this repertoire as a result and driven by the naturally meditative sincerity with which Mr Sánchez presents his art always, means that every note you will hear out of his horn ripens and swells with the kind of gravitas before it is propelled into the atmosphere from the bell of his burnished instrument.
