It is much more than that: for instance, one must be possessed of the understanding of tumbao and then mastery of that ability to impart it to one’s pianism. The answer, then, as to whether Mr Brandeis has succeeded in making music worth putting down on record so early in his career is, by all measures of music, a resounding success. This is a superb album, with music written as if by a tenured member of the tribe of Afro-Cuban musicians, so to speak. Mr Brandeis is French, of course. But on this music he has happily – and quite remarkably – “gone native”. His pianism is so subsumed by his gift for tumbao that this music may as well have been written by someone who is not French, but Cuban instead.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
