Guitarist Albare Assembles Super Group iTD for Long Way Tour!
"And Albare? He sounds like a positive blend of the late Wes Montgomery and an early George Benson. Airy and light melodic improvisations and the themes reflect and inner harmony of boundless grace." - Jazzpodium (Germany)
In 2011 Albert Dadon (Albare) came to the attention of Matthias Winckelmann, founder of prestigious German jazz label enja Records. Their mutual esteem led to the recording of a new project,Long Way. Produced by Winckelmann at his favorite Brooklyn studio, Studio Two, the album is a collaboration by some of the world's finest musicians including triple GRAMMY® Award winning drummer Antonio Sanchez (Pat Metheny Group), saxophonist George Garzone (the Joe Lovano Nonet), pianist Leo Genovese (Esperanza Spalding), prolific harmonica player Hendrik Meurkens and Albare's long time musical collaborator, bassist and composer, Evri (Evripedes Evripidou).
Albare calls this super group iTD, or the International Travel Diary, to reflect both their cosmopolitan backgrounds and their global aspirations. The music they create is sophisticated, masterfully played, with a sunny disposition that belies the depth and complexity of the compositions. Winckelmann describes it as, "a surprising, truly rewarding album" and the producer of albums by Chet Baker, Abdullah Ibrahim and many others should know.
