Big Bang Way In Jazz
- Words: Tomas Palermo
- Label: Arision
With more grey days than blue ones in England, it makes sense that Londoner Simone Serritella (of production duo Cuica) embraces musical sunshine. Serritella's second Big Bang album delivers a heat wave of near-perfect Afro-Latin and Brazilian-tinged tunes. The Arision boss recruits instrumentalists Jessica Lauren and Nathan Haines, plus vocalists Rasiyah and Xan Blaque, to enliven the samba rhythms of "Dancing Nights" and waltzing triplets on "Summer Fields." Opening with "My Favorite Things" and swinging straight through "Batucada Mondiale," with plenty of blazing Seiji-style sidestepping beats in between, it's clear that Serritella's found his way."
