Title - 'Reincarnated' [Pure Audio Blu-ray + CD]
Artist - Hazar
For those not in the know, on his new album Reincarnated (out now via Immersive Audio Network, and thanks to Pure Audio Blu-Ray, brought to us with an almost 3D sound experience in Dolby Atmos that clearly enhances and accentuates the "live" sound), Hazar shows an outstanding virtuosity and masters a congenial interplay, alternating with sonorous melodies, fast solo lines and breathtaking technique, while always adding new emotional depth to his playing.
For the recordings he collaborated with jazz guitarist Michael Sagmeister who contributed as a supervisor at his side. The tracks were recorded in a studio where Miles Davis made his recordings during his lifetime and mastered at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London.
More than ten years ago Hazar caused a sensation with his album Virtuoso, on which he played Paganini, Mozart and Bach with the saz on only three strings.
His artistry with long-necked lutes in perfect form, Hazar turned to the guitar at the height of his career.
As the title of Hazar's album suggests, Reincarnated marks a new era in his life, that is based on an impressive background.
1, 'Made for Wesley'
2. 'Spain' (featuring Al Di Meola)
3. 'Bossa Dorado'
4. 'Black Orpheus'
5. 'Made In France'
7. 'For Sephora'
8. 'Donna Lee'
9. 'Le Vieux Tzigane'
Also featuring special guest guitar virtuoso Al Di Meola, this quite magnificent album opens with the stunningly profound guitar mastery of 'Made for Wesley' and backs that up with one of the albums stand out tracks, the delightfully perky 'Spain' (featuring Al Di Meola).
We then get the, at first, piano-led, then the gentle acoustic guitar work of the immaculately orchestrated 'Bossa Dorado,' the playfully funky 'Black Orpheus,' and another stand out cut, the warmly inviting, yet vibrant tempo of 'Made In France.'
Next up is a delectable rendition of Gershwin's evergreen 'Summertime' which is itself backed by the free flowing 'For Sephora,' his wondrous reinterpretation of Charlie Parker's 'Donna Lee,' with the album gracefully closing on the instrumentalists virtuoso skills coming to the fore on the breathtaking 'Le Vieux Tzigane'
