CD Release Party
(Published: May 05, 2011)
"Soul to Sol," the premiere release on the Ruby Records label from Nuyorican Poet Miguel Algarin & Bassist Albey Balgochian, marks an important innovation in this their first duo release of spoken word and improvised bass. The multi-lingual Algarin slowly and deliberately conjures visions while baring emotions as he develops a deep rhythmic and lyrical cadence from the spirit that is at the center of his love for all things involving culture.
Known for a great deal of bowing and exploring a wide range of sounds, bassist Albey Balgochian clearly demonstrates his virtuoso technique while revealing a perceptive insight into the expansive nature of his instrument as he strikes down the status quo of inconsequentially compartmentalized genres.
Balgochian's freely improvised bass with Algarin's spoken word is powerful and emotionally stirring.
