Melbourne-based, Morocco-born guitarist Albare is currently on a European tour in support of his new album “Only Human”. From the Pat Metheny-like opener “Nightly News” to the smooth groove of the title track, here’s a pretty versatile musician combining his superb skills with imaginative compositions.
Albare, whose real name is Albert Dadon, wants his new album to be a “vibrant musical celebration of the common ground that makes us human”. He’s trying to achieve that by working with a diverse group of people from Venezuela, Cuba and Italy and his pianist and drummer on the album will also be on stage with him tonight at Berlin’s A-Trane.
Albare has received the prestigious Australian Jazz Award in his adopted home and is now on a journey to present his music to a worldwide audience – and he has been successful in this respect with his last albums as well. “The Road Ahead” for example was on the US jazz radio charts for 16 weeks.
