After building an impressive resume as a sideman, Puerto Rican-born, New York-based pianist Edsel Gomez makes his debut as a leader with the ambitious, intriguing CUBIST MUSIC. Based on the principles of Cubist paintings, Gomez's compositions insinuate themselves into the listener's ear with their repeated motifs, hypnotic rhythms, and imbricated structures. Gomez's approach may seem high-minded to fans of more mainstream jazz, but the music is still accessible, melodic, and highly engaging. Excellent playing from clarinetist Don Byron, saxophonist David Sanchez, and others (not to mention Gomez's exciting piano work), makes this a debut worth noting.<br><br>TRACK LISTING: <br>1.
