Daniel Cano & Doug Sides
1-2 Jewry Ln, Canterbury CT1 2NP
During lockdown the Spanish trumpeter Daniel Cano recorded a blistering duo album with the great jazz drummer Doug Sides (who has played with jazz icons such as Lionel Hampton, Chick Corea, Benny Golson and Hank Jones amongst many, many others).
Stripped right back to just rhythmic textures and a strong melodic line, the duo launched the album, Duplexity, at Ronnie Scott’s jazz club in London.
Duplexity is a fine showcase for the evidently strong relationship between a trumpeter whose warm, bright open tone evokes the hard-bop masters of the ’50s and ’60s and a drummer with a light touch and a supple sense of swing. Restricted means, in terms of instrumentation, but the result is a rich experience with no sense of austerity — or of overplaying to fill the spaces. (Richard Williams)
