Jose Roman Duque brings us new compositions after a 7 yrs hiatus of no new personal projects. But it was worth the wait. Coproducing with his friend Erik Aldrey, ( a fabulous Engineer, Mixer and Producer. Grammy-nominated, who has worked with Amigos Invisibles, Bacilos, Duran Duran, Arctic Monkeys, and many more) Jose gathered some of the musicians that have played with him in the past and some new ones to come up with an amalgam of powerful driven tunes that defy classification. At times Rock, At times, Jazz, Funk, World Music, and even Electronica, all this gives this album a complete rounded concept. Whereas is Manu Koch amazing piano playing, or Jon Durant (Burnt Belief guitarist wizard), or the haunting voice of Beatriz Malnič, or oven Jose's own playing. Composing the music, playing drums, keyboards, piano, bass and even voice on some of the tracks. It will be upon the listener to classify this style of music. Jose claims there is lots of jazz in it, but also pulsating rock force and aggressive nature, world rhythms echoing some Flamenco from Cadiz, or Venezuelan's Rhythms from the eastern coast. Somehow all those incongruent styles find a home in this project. Enjoy!
