If your Latin jazz collection centers mainly around styles from Cuba and Brazil, pianist Edward Simon would like you to consider expanding your library to include musical influences from a culturally diverse land geographically situated between those two countries – namely Venezuela, where he was born and lived until the age of 12. Simon is an acclaimed post-bop and modern creative jazz pianist in his adopted country of the United States, and while Latin American elements have certainly seasoned his recorded output to date, this 2014 Sunnyside release finds him focusing more intently than ever on the nexus between creative jazz and the folk music of his home country. The album's title is derived from "Venezuelan Suite," whose four parts fill over 28 minutes of the disc's concise 38-minute duration. Simon composed the suite for his Ensemble Venezuela, and the ten-member version of the group heard here – including musicians from the U.S., Venezuela, and Colombia – is wonderfully vibrant, ably fulfilling the pianist's creative intent. Chamber Music America commissioned Simon to write this work, and he rose to the challenge with music that is suitably rich with timbral and textural variety.

Il ruolo delle formiche nella biosfera – ci dice Edward Wilson – è così importante che l'umanità forse non potrebbe sopravvivere senza di esse. E di certo non potrebbe sopravvivere senza batteri e archei, l'invisibile e onnipresente «materia oscura» dell'universo vivente della Terra. Ma l'umanità, prigioniera della propria strategia arcaica della sopravvivenza a breve termine, è ancora troppo concentrata su se stessa e sui propri bisogni, e sta distruggendo la natura con la forza di un meteorite. Entro la fine del secolo, metà di tutte le specie potrebbero essere definitivamente uscite di scena. Avrà allora inizio quella che potrebbe venire ricordata un giorno come l'Era eremozoica – l'Età della Solitudine. …
