A great date from saxophonist Gato Barbieri – a record that's a bit mellower and more electric than some of his previous 70s efforts, but which is still plenty darn great! Gato's tenor has a tone that's undeniably great – a slightly raspy sort of edge that sounds warmly human and deeply personal, even when cast in fuller backings – as it is here, with arrangements and production from Herb Albert. There's still a few Latin undercurrents in the mix, but most of the backings feature guitar, keyboards, and percussion stretching out slowly and with a slightly slinky edge – still quite soulful, but a bit mellow at moments – in ways that allow Barbieri to slide out slowly with some great lines that wrap around the rhythms beautifully. Titles include "Ruby", "Nostalgia", "Adios", "Sunride", "Midnight Tango", and "Latin Reaction". (Cover has light wear and a cut corner.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
