Best of 2017 #36: Marta Sanchez Quintet – “Danza Imposible” (Fresh Sound New Talent)


Tracing the emerging patterns of a Marta Sánchez melody is like attempting to map out the shapes of a kaleidoscope.  The changes of tone, texture and shape create a series of unexpected discoveries, sometimes startling and sometimes sublime.  But that she goes through these thrilling permutations and then hits a landing spot that wraps everything up nicely is what clinches her 2017 release Danza Imposible as something special.  It’s a wonderful follow-up to her equally wonderful 2015 release Partenika, and a promising sign of the state of her music today and what might come next.

Music from NYC.
