Alfredo Dias Gomes' new album 'Looking Back' an inspired homage to musical heroes
(Published: December 01, 2015)

At times, the explosive energy on Alfredo Dias Gomes' new album Looking Back could light up the sky.

On his cover of Chick Corea's "Nite Sprite," Gomes' frenzied, rapid-fire drumming leaps out of the speakers; it's a relentless burst of speed and precision, delivered with perfection by an artist who has mastered his craft. It is exhilarating, especially when Yuval Ben Lior's chunky, electrifying riffs and Widor Santiago's robust saxophone similarly pick up steam.

On the surface, Looking Back is an homage to Gomes' favorite jazz artists, the ones who expanded his imagination. But Gomes transcends the art of producing a tribute effort. These aren't just note-for-note renditions, but are truly dazzling performances.

Gomes' version of Stanley Clarke's "Silly Putty," displays the bracing skills of Gomes and his backing musicians. Marco Bombom's relentlessly funky bass drips with sweat; he cuts a breathtaking groove. Guilherme Dias Gomes' trumpet comes in hot as well and Lior's guitars are absolutely smoking. Gomes' pummeling drums adds to this fast and furious jam.

However, not everything is at breakneck speed. "500 Miles High" injects a bit of chilled out calmness with Lulu Martin's soft spoken keyboards giving it a gentle touch.
