New review of SYOTOS’s latest release!
From the luxurious opener, the warm and senusous title track, Fields of Moon promises to be a singular Latin jazz experience. And as usual, Washburne and SYOTOS deliver. The writing, playing, and choice of material are sophisticated yet accessible, vibrant, and ever-swinging (even the ballads!), and their “Poinciana” is a refreshingly original, laid-back change from the Jamal warhorse. In a business where it’s all about one-track wonders, this CD provides 52 continuous minutes of pure delight.
