Razon con Amor gets Rave Review in Improvijazzation Issue #99
Oscar Reynolds - RAZON CON AMOR

Oscar's all-original music is just stunning, in both quality and energy.  He plays guitars and flutes (panpipes, actually) masterfully and with total passion for getting his message across to the listener... I had reviewed him in issue
#75 and was most impressed then, but "Razon Con Amor" takes it a level up, to be sure. When you listen to his flute work on "Mamuta", you will know right away why this Bolivian artist was able to capture my ears, & the percussion down under propels your imagination to new heights.  Another great composition (& the one that captures my vote as favorite) is "Folsom"... at 12:39, it's the second longest track on the album, and the players take a long time to build the mood (David Pinto on bass, Lalo Izquierdo doing cajon, cajita and donkey jaw and Raul Ramirez on cajon, wood blocks, congas, drums and effects) for you; Reynolds' pipes at about 4:40 will soar you to the outer edges of the universe on this one! I am (again) most highly impressed with Oscar's talent and give this a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, as well as an "EQ" (energy quotient) rating of 4.96.  Get more information at  - Rotcod Zzaj
