“ … absolutely terrific guitar playing by Albare …. Exceptional.”
SYNTHESIS WEEKLY, September 2013
Grammy Nominated ‘The Road Ahead’ was recorded in New York earlier this year, receiving glowing reviews worldwide and USA jazz chart success since its international release through ENJA Records, the legendary German label. The Road Ahead is launched in Australia by ABC Music.
Albare is performing one show only in Sydney at The Sound Lounge, Seymour Centre on Thursday, November 14.
Joining Albare on stage are Phil Turcio (Piano), Phil Rex (Bass) and Darryn Ferrugia (Drums), all musicians with whom Albare shares a music history.
“Albare’s music recalls that of the Bulgarian guitarist Hristo Vitchev, who has coined the term “heartmony,” which he defines as “the simultaneous combination of feelings and emotions, especially when produced by experiences, memories, and stimulations pleasing to the heart, body, and soul.” This describes Albare’s current offerings very well.” – Jazztimes Oct 2013

“What really strikes my ears are the compositions themselves and the quartet’s handling of them – not just the playing in and of itself, but the amount of thought given to create an unflagging multi-leveled timbre.” - FAME, August 2013.
“Albare, an exceptionally inventive guitarist, has gathered around him an ensemble of fine talent that seems to have bought into his vision.” Jack Goodstein (Blogcritics Review)
