Noel Lorica - First Dance

Jazz - Contemporary

First Dance is the debut album of consummate acoustic guitarist, composer- Noel Lorica. Jazz Lovers will groove to the fresh compositions of Noel Lorica. He has mastered the style of Wayward Jazz. Wayward Jazz uses the acoustic guitar to wind its way through classic forms of jazz, from the provocative rhythms of Latin jazz while adding the precision of its Asian counterpart to the heartfelt melodies of Smooth Jazz. If you like Peter White or Marc Antoine it’s a good bet you’ll like Noel Lorica. This collection of 11 instrumental works are truly songs without words. The guitar adds a voice filled with texture and emotion. Beginning with his award winning song “ Back in Five”, which introduces us to Noel Lorica’s vibrant, harmonious compositions and superb musicianship. As the album continues, it picks up tempo with body swaying precision in “Samba in A.” Then it takes on the familiar “My Favorite Things” with a most astonishing acoustic jazz interpretation. The journey further transports you to the cool Brazilian shores with the sultry melody of “El Viento”. Only to be brought back to pure innocence with the solo guitar of title song “First Dance”. At this point, most albums lose passion but “First Dance” only begins to further captivate with skill and soul. Each song in this album has unique character and is worthy of its own accolade. Some diversifying with piano melodies and guitar highlights as in “Forgiveness” & “ Scent of Cinnamon”. Or “Sarong Bangi” which brings in the swing that standard lovers applaud. While Latin jazz fans will clamor for the strong percussions of “Midnight Dreams” & “Last Dance” Wayward style. Finally ending with the smooth flowing beat of “Warm Winds”.
