Five of Montreal’s finest musicians present an exciting new album of music inspired by Jazz of the 1960’s. A combination of originals and compositions by Wayne Shorter and Hank Mobley. A hard swinging band with a straight ahead vibe and a modern sound.
Album Review - Ottawa Citizen, September 2019
The five Montreal-based musicians on guitarist Carlos Jiménez’s recently released album Don’t Fall are exceedingly well-schooled. (...) But there’s very little academic or ivory tower about the music on Don’t Fall. Granted, on Jiménez’s album there are choice tunes by Wayne Shorter (Virgo) and Hank Mobley (East of the Village) that attest to jazz erudition. (...) Still, what shines through on Jimenez’s album is how much he and his peers have internalized the jazz tradition, making its fire, flow and swing their own.
