Fusion Beat delivers vibrant mix of Latin, funk, and world music
(Published: August 16, 2016)

Fusion Beat gives its listeners a feast for the senses in their new album Against All Odds. The sextet brings together fresh tunes with a vibrant mix of jazz, Latin, funk, and world music. Since each member comes from a diverse background, you can really hear the dynamic blend of Puerto Rican, New Orleans, Afro-Cuban, Be-Bop, European, and South American influences in the album.

"Story Ave" is like an intense narrative that begins with a melodramatic piano solo with percussion flutters. What seems to be a poignant piece shifts effortlessly to an upbeat tempo that's both delightful and heartwarming. Jazz never sounded so soothing yet lyrical. The emotional undertone still remains in the background amidst the upbeat jazz dominating it, creating a beautiful musical tension.

"Story Ave" is a sweet juxtaposition of something hopeful and sorrowful with hope winning over sorrow. The music ends with a fast crescendo before it mellows down slowly to fade like a fleeting summer romance.

"Armando's Rhumba" will make you put your dancing shoes on. This is Latin Jazz at its finest. It kicks off with an upbeat tempo, seamlessly blending the trumpet, piano, and percussion tunes. Each instrument has a shining moment in this track. The trumpet solo is majestic while the pulsating piano highlight will leave you breathless. The bass guitar solo reverberates with deep and near enchanting power. The entire song is all about build up. There is no slowing down, only increasing intensity until it reaches its full musical climax before delivering a fully synchronized, perfectly coordinated stop.

This album will take you to a musical journey of a thousand flavors. Fusion Beat truly lives up to its name as the group wonderfully blends different genres while creating their own unique sound. Every track has its own character with mesmerizing instrumental nuances that will leave you engaged from start to finish.

Against All Odds goes against the tide, taking listeners to a beautiful, wild ride where they come out revitalized after being immersed in a sweet sundry fusion of beats.
