New David Borgo album is dynamic, spontaneous
(Published: August 31, 2021)

David Borgo is a composer/saxophonist with a distinctive approach to performance and songwriting. His style is heavily inspired by modern jazz, which means that his music is often incredibly kaleidoscopic and diverse, embracing a huge range of aesthetics. In addition to that, David has a strong penchant for improvisational performances, creating a feel that is spontaneous and dynamic, and which often defines the concept of his releases, adding a dash of instinct to the mix.

His most recent studio work is titled Suite of Uncommon Sorrows. The work unfolds over the span of eleven tracks, which would probably more accurately described as parts, since they serve as sections to this original studio work. Conceptually, David took a deeper dive in what the world went through in 2020, with songs inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as various other social issues, including the increasing political divisiveness in the United States and elsewhere around the world.

With each musical segment, David managed to create a relatable, yet somewhat introspective musical journey, which highlights his unique perspective on all the aforementioned matters and beyond. The opening song "Kuebiko," could be described as a perfect introduction, since its sound welcomes the listener into the aesthetics of this release.

"Chrysalism" follows right along. The saxophone playing is gentle and articulate on this song, highlighting David's fantastic sound as well as his ability to consistently set the bar higher with a lovely mood and some unique textures. The drumming on the song (and on the rest of the record) is quite exceptional as well, so seamlessly highlighting the dynamics of the sax and the other instruments in the mix.

There are so many amazing songs here, but "One Step Forward Two Steps Back" stands out as one of the highlights, especially due to its spontaneous vibe and upbeat pace, which brings something unique to this album. The sound of this release is refreshingly modern, but it is also timeless and charming, allowing the natural textures of the instruments to breathe. The whole album is a powerful creative statement, in line with these "uncommon" times!
