Na albumie "Migration" debiutje w roli lidera jeden z najbardziej znanych obecnie perkusistów: Antonio Sanchez. Album wydał CAM Jazz - wytwórnia konsekwentnie wytyczająca sobie nowe cele, która dzięki współpracującym z nią muzykom może poszczycić się wejsciem na orbitę, po której poruszają się na codzień gwiazdy współczesnego jazzu: Chick Corea i Pat Metheny. Pianista i gitarzysta, w formacjach których Antonio Sanchez grywa od lat, są faktycznie gośćmi na "Migration". Skład uzupełniają Scott Colley, jeden z najbardziej docenianych poszukiwanych współcześnie kontrabasistów oraz Chris Potter i David Sanchez, jedni z najlepszych obecnie saksofonistów grających obecnie na jazzowych scenach.


Po kilkukrotnym przesłuchaniu "Migration" ukazuje pełnie swej artystycznej głębi: to bardzo energetyczny jazz, równocześnie pełen ekspresyjnych podtekstów, w których twórcza i bardzo dynamiczna gra Antonio Sanchez'a jest decydującym motorem zdarzeń, bez uzurpowania sobie pretensji do bycia w centrum zainteresowania. W tym sensie perkusista udowadnia cechy lidera, potrafiącego prowadzić członków swego zespołu po osobistych, wielobarwnych dźwiękowych trajektoriach, eksponującego najsilniejsze atuty każdego z nich. Sercem albumu, nagranego w Nowym Jorku w styczniu 2007 roku są cztery kompozycje grane w kwartecie (Did You Get It?, Challenge Within, Greddy Silent, skomponowane przez Sanchez'a i Inner Urge Joe Hendersona), w których para saksofonistów (obaj na tenorach) opanowuje scenę, zamieniając się w światłach jupiterów i tworzących przestrzeń spektakularnej wymiany muzycznej ekspresji (Potter jest słyszany w lewym, Sanchez w prawym kanale). W utworze Sand, śpiewnej i lirycznej kompozycji napisanej specjalnie na ten album, elementarne muzyczne składniki uzupełnia gitara Pata Metheny, grającego fragment solo ze świetnym wyczuciem struktury utworu. Ballade, kolejny temat Sanchez'a, wykonuje trio z Potterem, udowadniającym swe najwyższe umiejętności solistyczne, tym razem na sopranie. Również w trio wykonywany jest otwierający płytę One For Antonio, utwór dedykowany perkusiście przez Chicka Corea, który z tej okazji prezentuje się w najbardziej przekonującej od kilku lat odsłonie. Finał albumu powierzono za to duetowi Sanchez - Metheny, wykonującemu znany Solar Milesa Davisa: najlepsza konkluzja dla albumu, który od początku do końca ani na moment nie obniża pułapu artystycznego smaku i poziomu twórczego napięcia.


Urodzony w Mexico City 1 listopada 1971 roku Antonio Sanchez odkrył dla siebie perkusję w wieku zaledwie 5 lat. Biorąc prywatne lekcje stał się uczestnikiem różnych muzycznych scen: od rocka i jazzu po muzykę latynoską. Po ukończeniu studiów w lokalnym National Conservatory, gdzie studiował w klasie fortepianu, oraz Berklee College of Music i New England Conservatory w Bostonie, perkusista rozpoczął profesjonalną karierę, początkowo współpracując z United Nation Orchestra Dizzy Gillespiego, a później z Michaelem Breckerem, Patem Metheny (z oboma w Pat Metheny Group oraz trio uzupełnionym basistą Christianem McBride'em) oraz Charlie Hadenem, pianistami Danilo Perezem i Marcusem Robertsem i innymi. Przed nagraniem "Migration" Antonio Sanchez wystąpił na dwóch innych albumach wydanych przez CAM Jazz: "Architect Of The Silent Moment" Scotta Volley'a i "Viva" wenezuelskiego trębacza Diego Urcola, nominowanego w 2006 roku do nagrody Grammy w kategorii najlepszego albumu z jazzową muzyką latynoską.

Editor's Info:
"Migration" is an album where one of today's most well-known drummers debuts as leader: Antonio Sanchez. To release it is CAM Jazz-- a label which is constantly aiming towards new goals and, thanks to this musician, it can boast its entrance into the same orbit as two contemporary jazz stars such as Chick Corea and Pat Metheny. The pianist and the guitarist-- in whose group Antonio Sanchez has been playing for years-- are in fact guests on "Migration", which is then fully completed with contributions by Scott Colley, one of the most appreciated and sought-after double-bass players today, and by Chris Potter and David Sanchez, two of the best sax plays now on the scene.

After listening again and again, "Migration" reveals all of its artistic depth: it is jazz at a highly energetic level, but at the same time rich with expressive overtones, in which Antonio Sanchez's imaginative and very dynamic drumming plays a crucial propulsive role, but without ever exceeding himself in the limelight. In this sense, the drummer shows real quality as a leader, capable as is to guide his band members along personal, multicoloured, trajectory sounds and to extract the very best from them. The heart of the album, recorded in New York in January of 2007, is represented by four tracks performed in quartet (Did You Get It?, Challenge Within, Greddy Silent, written by Sanchez, and Inner Urge by Joe Henderson), where the two sax players, both on tenors, dominate the scene by alternating themselves beneath the spotlight, and providing a place for scorching, spectacular exchanges of bars (Potter is heard on the left channel and Sanchez on the right). In Sand, Pat Metheny's guitar is added to the base nucleus, in an arioso and lyrical composition that he wrote expressly for this recording, which carves out a solo built with knowledgeable architectural sense. Ballade, another theme by Sanchez, is reserved for trio with Potter, who proves himself a first-rate soloist even on soprano. Also performed in trio is the opening track of the CD, One For Antonio, a homage to the drummer written by Chick Corea who, for the occasion, offers his most convincing demonstration in recent years. The finale is instead entrusted to Sanchez and Metheny in a face-to-face while performing the famous notes of Solar by Miles Davis: the best way to conclude an album that from the beginning to the end doesn't show any slack in taste nor decrease in tension.

Born in Mexico City on November 1, 1971, Antonio Sanchez discovered the drums when he was only five years old. After having taken private lessons, he began to join different music scenes, from rock to jazz, to Latin music. After completing his studies at the National Conservatory in his city, where he studied classical piano, and at Berklee College of Music and New England Conservatory in Boston, the drummer then gave start to his professional career which, in short, brought him to collaborate with the United Nation Orchestra by Dizzy Gillespie and, later, with Michael Brecker, Pat Metheny (in both the Pat Metheny Group and the trio completed with bassist Christian McBride), with Charlie Haden, pianists Danilo Perez and Marcus Roberts and others. Before recording "Migration", Antonio Sanchez participated on two other CAM Jazz albums: "Architect Of The Silent Moment" by Scott Colley and "Viva" by Venezuelan trumpet player Diego Urcola, nominated in 2006 for a Grammy in the Best Latin Jazz Album category.

AllMusic
Drummer Antonio Sanchéz's debut recording as a leader is an impressive outing. An alum of both Berklee and the New England Conservatory of Music jazz studies programs, the percussionist has appeared on CDs by Pat Metheny, Michael Brecker, Avishai Cohen and Miguel Zenón. He leads a core quartet including bassist Scott Colley plus saxophonists Chris Potter and David Sanchez, with Metheny and Chick Corea as special guests on selected tracks. The leader's four originals hold one's interest, especially his percolating "Challenge Within" and the alternately tense and freewheeling "Greedy Silence." Sanchéz dominates the delightful off-kilter arrangement of Joe Henderson's "Inner Urge," playing freely against the twin tenor saxes, while Miles Davis' "Solar" is an unusual guitar/drum duet with Metheny. Corea contributed the infectious Latin-flavored opener "One for Antonio," a trio number with Colley that showcases each of the musicians. The quartet is joined by Metheny for the guitarist's hypnotic Latin ballad "Arena (Sand)."

Antonio Sanchez: Migration The desert has a story hidden in its eye. Many things take up its plot: the earth, the ever-changing sky, those that pass through it. Antonio Sanchez's debut, Migration, deftly evokes the life of the desert as an allegory for the journey within all of us.

Sanchez climbed to prominence in the Pat Metheny Group, whose eponymous leader adds his talents to his drummer's first work. This is not to imply that Sanchez hasn't made burnished musical relationships of his own. He belongs to a battery of new young voices, two of which contribute to this well-woven tale: Chris Potter (tenor and soprano saxophones), and Scott Colley (bass). David Sanchez (tenor sax) is added to this list of firebirds, and in this case it works particularly well. Another contributor is pianist Chick Corea, who still demonstrates the freshness that has permeated since he emerged with Now He Sings, Now He Sobs. (Solid State, 1968).

Sanchez sports an impeccable musical bloodline. He trained at Boston's Berklee College of Music, as well as the New England Conservatory of Music, as a pianist. This was accompanied by lessons in drumming which eventually won out over the piano. One can still hear its influence; his drumming is no less melodic, demonstrating a range of dynamics and tones under his hands. He's also played with bassist Charlie Haden and the late saxophonist Michael Brecker, to whom this disk is dedicated.

Migration portrays an amalgam of polyphonic images that express the riddles we encounter on this journey and their prismatic answers. Corea's post-bop use of contrapuntal yet resonant angles, Metheny's poignant melodicism, Potter and David Sanchez' playful arguments and Miles' final holographic influence contribute to its sense of evolution.

Yet it bears Sanchez's indelible mark, like the rain on the salt-etched flats of the Argentinean plains on the album cover. Despite his diffidence about composing (see his All About Jazz interview), he appears to have met his own challenge within, a phrase he uses as a song title. Four of the compositions are his; they reflect a graceful intuition borne of devotion to his craft. Is "Did You Get It? a teasing response to Metheny's "(Go) Get It or, even more closely in form, "What Do You Want? —both standards in his mentor's trio repertoire?

But in the quieter moments Sanchez's dynamics really become the soul of the work. A drummer as talented as Sanchez might be tempted to muddy up the space with sound. In "Ballade" and "Greedy Silence" the spaces speak for themselves, making the listener the most effective musician in the pieces, because then the story becomes one's own.

The desert has its own way, sometimes silent, sometimes storm-driven, and not always a journey we would travel, given a choice. It is our own challenge within that often makes us aspire to its proving. But it is in that process, so eloquently delineated in Migration, that we find that we have become richer human beings because of it.
