Fernando Ulibarri: Transform

Here’s a fresh sounding guitarist that makes his music flow with glowing delight. Fernando Ulibarri brings together Jim Gasior/p-key, Jsoh Allen/b and John Yarling/dr for nine originals that deliver a subtle post modern sound that glides gently and overwhelms you with quietude. His playing on pieces such as “The Left Side” and “Maldito Tiempo” display a well versed mix of technique and eloquence, with long tones and winding melodies taking you on journeys and side routes. The deft drive by Allen and Yarling on “Cycle Tune” and “The Fire will Burn Us Both” is graceful and yet relentless. This is music that draws you in rather than chases you away.
