Far Far Away
Jim Snidero, Featuring Kurt Rosenwinkel
FAR FAR AWAY is a sonic powerhouse, leveraging every aspect of this magnificent, all-star quintet. Kurt Rosenwinkel’s searing, innovative playing is on full display, Jim Snidero demonstrates a broadsword of a sound, and the rhythm section of Orrin Evans, Peter Washington and Joe Farnsworth groove and interact at the highest levels of artistry. Building on the 5-star success (Down beat Magazine) of LIVE AT THE DEER HEAD INN, which included Evans, Washington and Farnsworth, Snidero adds fuel to the fire with the addition of Rosenwinkel’s highly influential guitar style.
The result is an inspired performance bursting at the seams with musicality and drive. Jim Snidero’s six originals create the perfect mix of current trends and tradition. Swing, Latin, and Euro grooves are all represented, yet the album is surprisingly cohesive, flowing from one tune to the next. The classics “It Might as Well be Spring” and McCoy Tyner’s deeply relevant “Search for Peace” round out this amazing release.
