Album review: 'Future Memories' 

Yotam Silberstein

'Future Memories'


Since landing in New York in 2005, Yotam Silberstein has been enlisted by top artists like The Heath Brothers, James Moody, Roy Hargrove, and many others. Rochester jazz festival attendees have heard his wonderful solos and sensitive coloration supporting Tessa Souter. On "Future Memories," his sixth album as a leader, the Israeli-born guitarist explores his affinity for the music of South America. The cross-cultural journey is superb from start to finish.

Along with top bassist John Patitucci, the album features Brazilian Vitor Gonçalves on keyboards, accordion and percussion. Keyboardist Glenn Zaleski, drummer Daniel Dor, and synthesizer player André Mehmari also contribute. The supporting players are important because, although Silberstein's superb technique stands out, his equally noteworthy arrangements showcase all the players. The album includes three covers by top Latin American composers, but the gorgeous, dream-like compositions of Silberstein are perhaps most salient.
