Ruben Samama -//- Hotaru – [O.A.P. Records, 2009]
What a surprisingly versatile and strong band bass player Ruben Samama brought together here for his debut CD! There is really a lot to be discovered and enjoyed in this dynamic album: the inescapable structures of the arrangements, the exciting and frenetic movement of ‘Ji’, the touching way a classic like Gordon Jenkins’ ‘Goodbye’ is handled, the inspired and to-the-point soloing, this is a band with a sound of its own.
What young cats? This is jazz from and for grown ups. —O.A.P. Records
