Daniel Silva shines with diverse, engaging drumming on new EP
(Published: March 04, 2020)

Daniel Silva is an accomplished drummer and jazz musician. His sound is balanced and diverse, and his composing and arranging often borrows from a truly broad range of influences, activities, and ideas. What makes his work stand out is definitely the fact that he knows how to create engaging rhythmic patterns with his drum kit while still retaining a classy and balanced sound.

The best drummers aren't only the ones who are able to showcase intricate chops. They are also the ones who know how to restrain themselves and embrace beautiful minimalism in their playing dynamics. On the songs featured on his most recent studio EP, Silva showcases his ability to swing between both of these different fronts. His drumming style does not overpower the songs, but rather works along the melodies and it boosts the arrangements, acting like a glue that holds the vision together. The EP is actually titled Minas Under Traffic, and it features some gorgeous arrangements making for a traditional jazz feel with a refreshing modern twist.

The EP, which will receive an official launch on April 5, 2020, at The Jazz Forum for the Arts in Territown, NY, features four cuts. The title track clocks in slightly under the six-minute mark and it serves as a fantastic introduction to Silva's broad-ranging creativity and unique feel. "Mahjong," one of the most impressive pieces on the EP, is proof of his creativity, and it showcases a more exotic approach to rhythm, going for a spontaneous, yet sophisticated vibe.

The poignant song titled "Memoria" kicks off with some vibraphone-like tones and it also unveils some experimental melodies, toying with dissonance and contributing to a soothing and unique fabric of sounds and percussion. "Istanbul" begins with a catchy double bass riff, and the drums immediately kick in, with a nice rim-click type snare sound and some terrific dynamics on the kit. The saxophone takes the lead beautifully, giving the song a very vocal lead melody. Fans of modern jazz music are definitely going to appreciate this release, which really makes me think of the contemporary NYC school.
