ABEL LEMUS
Enrredo
This talented guitarist draws from such varied influences as Jobim and Segovia, with jazzy leanings toward Montgomery, Benson and Kenny Burrell. Abel Lemus's style is smooth and accomplished as he takes you on a journey through beautiful Brazilian melodies, spirited sambas, mildly funky workouts and even a little spaghetti Western music.
"Ocean's Pearl" kicks things off with romantic flamenco followed by the title track's strong Latin pulse and guitar harmonies. "Showdown" shifts gears in a more cinematic country Western vein while "Freeze" deftly combines electric and acoustic guitars for an open Santana-like vibe.
Twelve songs total; perhaps the dominant aura here is moody and relaxed reflection. Ironically, the album ends with a tune entitled "Alpha" which, yet again, takes Lemus' music down another adventuresome path by way of delicate chordal arpeggios, a waltz feel and subtle orchestration. -- Eric Harabadian

Re-Viewed by A&R dept Music Comments: It's nearly impossible to hear Abel Lemus' "Ocean Pearl" and not think of just that - the ocean - sitting, Margarita in hand staring at the sun kissed white caps of the sea. This is more than mood music. This is full on crossover magic. In addition to the aforementioned opening number, the other highlights include the title track, "Enrrada", a decadent six-string gem, so rich, any admirer of any music can admire it. There is also "Chemistry", a delightful combo of charm and elegance. Overall, Lemus scores high with this cultural bullseye. We certainly look forward to mucho mas where this came from.
