Searing horn lines, thumping beats and unique concepts are
all uniquely wrapped up in a new and exciting term EDM Latin Jazz, and who
other than the legendary Mac Gollehon, trumpeter to David Bowie, Duran, Duran,
and even the iconic Miles Davis is standing at the helm.His latest endeavor Mac Gollehon & The Hispanic
Mechanics will take you on the ride of your life, but don’t expect this
to be reminiscent of Gollehon’s previous recordings like La Fama or Mac
Straight Ahead, the only element that remains the same is Gollehon’s
high reaching notes, excellent rhythm and a lip that won’t quit.
“No More Drama” the single riffs and explodes in a rhythmic
frenzy of EDM at its finest, with intricate colors and textures all the while
driving the beat to fervor.Gollehon’s
trumpet cuts through the electronica and laces the message.If you are sitting still at this point,
please check your pulse.
“II Aceite” offers the listener a totally hip 70’s retro
sound with a heavy electronic latin rhythm and a touch of R&B
hipness.Gollehon delivers with spot on
trumpet pyrotechnics and shimmering tone.
Each tune on this groundbreaking offering is not to be
missed, not to be overlooked and not to be skipped. Closing out the journey is “If
Time Allows” a space continuum trip to space that challenges the senses and adds a
psychedelic emotive to the inner ear. Remixed by Mark Henry, it is a genus of cornucopia
Gollehon has always been known to be ahead of his time, but
this shoots him into the stratosphere of pioneer, a seat he is already comfortable
with – this long awaited new recording by Gollehon is exactly what this generation
of jazz listener is yearning for – jazz with experimentation, muscularity, and
modern sounding relevancy, no batteries required, this ship will mark its own
masterpiece course, a highly recommended listen, especially for the adventurous
