Michel Camilo | One More Once – [Columbia, 1994] – Weekend SpinOne More Once is quite possibly the easiest recommendation in my entire jazz collection, and that’s saying something. Every track is laced with passion and expression, and beauty. “Why Not?” is in-your-face Latin Jazz at its finest, with a freakishly tight horn section that blows my hair back every time I hear it. “Suite Sandrine” and “Dreamlight” are a welcome reprieve from the intensity of previous tracks, and offer captivating grooves that make the 8+ minutes per song more than welcome.
The second half of the album is a return to upbeat material that’s crisp and engaging, with memorable themes throughout. Michel Camilo shows his brilliance as a musician, composer, and arranger on every track — this CD is quite possibly his finest work. A must-have for any jazz lover. —Mr. Mixer
