Antoine Fafard Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Squire Jaco

5 stars As I write this review, only the "limited edition" cd is available. I liked Fafard's last three albums so much that I opted to spend a little more and get this limited edition before the general September release. I'm really glad I did.

This is a stellar album all around. The packaging is beautiful and the liner notes are informative. This has three additional tracks that the regular release does not, and they are similarly wonderful. And the production is just top notch, top notch. It almost sounds like a drummer's album, they are mic'd so perfectly.

Not a long review here, but rest assured that this is some of Fafard's best songwriting, and he complements it with two great accompanying musicians in Gary Husband and Jerry DeVilliers Jr., sounding much like Allan Holdsworth in spots. Fafard takes the lead enough to please all bass-lovers (e.g. yours truly), but doesn't steal the show from the whole band.

I've been handing out 4 stars to each of his last solo albums. This one deserves the full 5.

Review by BrufordFreak
Collaborator Jazz-Rock / Fusion / Canterbury Team

5 stars An amazing album of jazz fusion very much in the vein of the BRUFORD albums of the late 1970s, but more polished and way more more accessible. Composer and band leader Antione Fafard is an accomplished jazz bass player, but here he has garnered the loyalty of some extraordinary musicians to help realize his music. Preeminent drummer Vinny Colaiuta and guitarist extraordinaire Jerry De Villiers, Jr. No disrespect to the Townsends, father and son, or Mr. Holdsworth but, when the virtuosity is there, there is nothing like a band of live musicians. A lot of the songs remind me of Jaco Pastorius Weather Report, Percy Jones Brand X, and with a little bit of Joni Mitchell, Pat Metheny, Earthworks, and Hiromi's Sonicbloom thrown in there. This may be a bit premature, but I'm going to go out there and say that this is one of Jazz Fusion's all- time top 10 albums! It is that good! Three (four including sax player Jean-Pierre Zanella) amazing musicians ... all at the top of their game ... playing a set of beautifully composed and flawlessly executed songs. What a jaw-dropping concert experience this would be!

Favorite songs: ALL!! (Even the nutty one!)

Without hesitation: this is a five star album! Check it out! NOW!

Solus Operandi
Antoine Fafard Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Irek

5 stars Excellent album! No two ways about it! Considering Antoine's output thus far as the chief composer of the Canadian outfit Spaced Out, there was nothing to be afraid of while expecting his another release, but on the flip side of it, I must admit that was a bit apprehensive about what might come out of Antoine's intentions to record his debut album which he announced as "new jazz fusion music". However, the outcome exceeded all my expectations. All my doubts were shattered with the very first listen given to tracks like "New Venture", "Horny Cat" or "Solus Souls". This is undoubtedly Antoine's best effort to date, both as a musician and a composer, which only increases the excitement one might have about what the guy may have in store for us in the forthcoming months. The introduction of classical guitar combined with jazz-fusion feel to the music turned out to be a great success. With its great instrumentation showcased by the collaborators, as well as deeply engrossing musical ideas successfully implemented by the combo mastermind, the album definitely stands apart from its contemporaries. The atmosphere of mystery throughout the album, thoughtfully interwoven here and there with bright, jazzy colours, has made the cd an inseparable part of my life. Highly recommended!
Thanks to evolver for the artist addition.
