Modern Drummer – May 2015

Ignacio Berroa Heritage and Passion The brilliant Cuban-born player stretches out on originals and standards, captivating the mind,body, and soul. Ignacio Berroa shares the elastic time feel of jazz legends Elvin Jones and Tony Williams, but he has carved out his own place among the legends. Berroa’s ride patterns are so smooth, you hardly notice as he switches from straight-ahead jazz to mambo and Afro-Cuban feels. And his subtle infusion of left-foot clave makes all of his grooves infectious and unique. When he trades eights on Miles Davis’s “Nardis,” it’s downright astonishing, with many twists and turns. Berroa kills on his originals as well: “Laura’s Waltz” is a beautiful composition that showcases hypnotizing brushwork. And “Ignacio’s Solo” is exactly what we’ve come to expect from the master: a tasteful, elegant dissertation. (5Passion) Greg Sundel […]

LJN – Latin Jazz Network Review – Ignacio Berroa: Heritage and Passion

  LJN – Latin Jazz Network Ignacio Berroa: Heritage and Passion by Raul da Gama – Mar 2, 2015 Heritage and Passion… Never was an album so aptly titled and rarely has an album been so magnificently and ingeniously crafted. And while synthesizers and midi controllers may have been used before to great effect by the likes of Miles Davis, Weather Report and by Ralph Towner and Oregon, and Lyle Mays, the crafty manner of their use by Gonzalo Rubalcaba and Mark Shim is absolutely alluring and inventive. But first there is this: from behind a battery of drums and cymbals, Ignacio Berroa conducts his ensemble with ingenuity and his drumming simply catches fire as the music progresses. There are drummers who are […]

Ignacio Berroa Receives Lifetime Achievement Award from the Montreal Drum Festival

HIS TRIUMPHANT REGAL RETURN The Montréal Drum Fest is proud to announce the return of the king—the great Ignacio Berroa. Let the bells and the banners fly! Nobody forgets how he ignited the crowd last visit. And he’s gotten tighter, slicker, hotter, and more exciting. This is going to be good. At once a veteran and a pioneer, the Cuban-born drummer has been applauded through the years for his facility in combining folkloric rhythms with contemporary jazz and funk. It’s a fiery blend that swings like a mother, grooves like a locomotive, never forgetting old country roots. For a pre Drum Fest taste, Google “Se Le Ve”, a hit track Berroa cut with the Puerto Rican band Batacumbele decades back. […]
