Shaneye – 2008

Andrea Brachfeld’s latest release “Into the World A Musical Offering” features Mike Longo, longtime musical director for Dizzy Gillespie, Paul West, worldwide known bassist extraordinaire, and Brian Lynch, Eddie Palmieri’s trumpet player.

The music on the CD ranges from Latin Jazz to Salsa, Yoruban and Hebrew chants, to straight ahead jazz. Andrea’s original compositions comprise the majority of the tracks and her compositional skills as well as technical versatility on the flute are outstanding.

This CD is one not to be missed. Her longtime band members include Bob Quaranta on the piano, Andy Eulau on the bass, Kim Plainfield and Diego Lopez on the drums, and Chembo Corniel on the congas. One of the favorite tracks on the CD, “Passing Friends” is dedicated to the multitude of masters who have passed away in the past couple of years.
