Billy Gibbons Perfectamundo (November 6, 2015)

Billy Gibbons — Perfectamundo (November 6, 2015)

 Billy Gibbons — Perfectamundo Billy Gibbons — Perfectamundo•  Auta, kytary a všechno mezi tím. Gibbonsovo první sólové album po více než 45 letech hudební dráhy. Velký prostor pro Hammondy, maracas, timbales, clavas, congas a bongos. Gibbons, který studoval latinské percussions už jako mladík s Tito “King of the Mambo” Puentem, je opět spojen se svým mentorem po pozvání na Havana Jazz Festival 2014. I když tuto událost Gibbons minul, inspirovalo ho to k prozkoumání palety afro–kubánských zvuků. The BFG band je asi dvakrát tak velký jako Gibbonsovo obvyklé trio. Ale i se všemi dodatečnými latinskoamerickými pekusemi, klavírem a Hammondy B–3 je celkový zvuk lehčí, volnější a prostornější než typicky hustý ZZ Top fuzzy kravál.  V rámci žánrů zde prozkoumaných. Je radost slyšet v tomto novém prostředí jeho invenční, vkusná kytarová sóla..., a to se mi zdá někde v zátylku docela dost na toto 11–ti písňové album. Nemluvě o pikantní zábavě, které já nemůžu rozumět ani z rychlíku: mám na mysli přepínání španělštiny do angličtiny a následně do ‘Slanguish’. Resumé: impozantní kytara, zpěv a songwriterství z míst, kam Syřan nezamíří, ale jestli tam má Billy svou dlouholetou girlfriend Gilligan Stillwater (born Ellen J. Oetjen), to vám teď neřeknu. Vy to určitě budete vědět líp ... Úžasný Score: 8¾Birth name: William Frederick Gibbons

℗ 2015 Concord Music Group, Inc.•  Perfectamundo, the debut solo album from Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top guitarist/vocalist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, is a blend of Blues, Jazz, Latin and Rock sensibilities, as Gibbons explores songs with a new backing band, The BFG’s, who are a handpicked group of musicians selected for this unique outing. The album itself was inspired by Billy’s early influence of Cuban Jazz and studying Latin percussion with Tito Puente in New York at an early age. The album originated with Gibbons invitation to perform at the 2014 Havana Jazz Festival. While he was unable to make it to Cuba, Billy did commence exploring the potential for an Afro–Cuban inflected album project at his Houston studio. The musical genius of Billy Gibbons is to be heard on his first ever solo album, refreshingly unexpected but most predictably.
•  “My dad sent me up to New York to study Latin percussion with Tito Puente. I learned maracas, timbales, clavas, bongos...you name it,” Gibbons says. “And having lived in Mexico a couple years, I know just enough Spanish to get me in trouble.” As the title may suggest, the album takes on a bit of an Afro–Cuban flavor that may come as a surprise to some Gibbons fans and followers. Perfectamundo. ¡Escuchemos!Billy Gibbons and the BFGs: Perfectamundo review — ZZ Top guitarist goes Latin hip–hop
Dave Simpson, Thursday 5 November 2015 21.45 GMT; Score: ***
•  The world may not have realised it was waiting for a Latin–Cuban hip–hop album from the guitarist in ZZ Top, but Perfectamundo is just that: a mix of distinctive, Top–ish rock licks and seemingly unlikely rhythms. In fact, long before ZZ Top, Gibbons was a student of Latin music giant Tito Puente, and the influence audibly runs deep. •  Gibbons takes bluesy standards Got Love If You Want It and Treat Her Right on a South American tour, while his originals deliver a ridiculously catchy Tex–Mex feast in Piedras Negras, turning the timbales and congas up even louder. His gruff, growled, double entendres — delivered in English and Spanish — are not the strongest point here, and are buried in the mix. Still, whether doffing a sombrero to hip–hop or fret–melting like Jimi Hendrix, Gibbons is clearly having a blast, and the big–bearded rock beast’s yelled invitation to “Have a party! Let’s have a siesta!” is not easily turned down. •  http://www.theguardian.com/

•  ZZ Top’s 2012 album La Futura — their first in nearly a decade — was widely acclaimed for bringing back the group’s grimy ‘70s boogie, so what did Billy Gibbons choose to do for a follow–up? Naturally, he decided to leave his little old band behind so he could record Perfectamundo with a new group called the BFG’s. Perfectamundo allows Gibbons to not only indulge a newfound love of Cuban rhythms — an infatuation assisted by pianist Martin Guigui, who provides an anchor in the BFG’s — but also all the studio trickery he left behind as he worked with Rick Rubin on La Futura. Certainly, percolating Cuban rhythms lie at the foundation of Perfectamundo, but Gibbons can’t resist setting everything to tightly controlled drum machines, then hauling out a bunch of studio effects, including a vocoder that pushes his gravelly croak into something slippery and sly. All this flair is a welcome reminder that, for all his vaunted blues purism, Gibbons remains something of a futurist, happily blurring the lines between the present and past along with obliterating the lines between cultures. True, some of this playfulness can result in moments that are decidedly dorky, like the opening gambit of oldies covers (“Got Love if You Want It,” “Treat Her Right”), which feel stiff. “Hombre Sin Nombre” seems constructed to house every synthesized sound Gibbons ever imagined, “Quiero Mas Dinero” boasts a rap that would’ve seemed old–fashioned in 1989, and the chants of “baby shake that ass” on the title track are the furthest thing from sexy — but this isn’t a bug, it’s a feature.
•  As good as it was, La Futura felt somewhat constrained by the concept of ZZ Top’s classicism, whereas this record thrives on freedom, including the freedom to be ridiculous. The very fact that Perfectamundo gets silly makes it appealing: Gibbons enjoys playing with this Cuban–blues hybrid so much, he lets down his guard, allowing himself to spin out some slick, greasy solos, ride out some infectious vamps, and act like the cheerful dirty old man he is.                                         © 2184 x 3058 Billy with Chevron
