Tanger: Mundos Paralelos

Tanger are an Argentinian jazz-fusion quartet formed in 1999: Mundos Paralelos is their fourth album. This fusion is predominantly jazz flavored, rather than rock, and there is little or no experimentation. Its main impression is as a straightforward mid-tempo instrumental jazz album which just happens to have Eduardo Ferreyra's electric guitar as one of the dominant instruments. The other dominant instrument in Tanger's soundscape is Damian Lois's flute: these two more or less monopolize the lead instrument soundscape.

It didn't seem that it would be that way as "Ansiedad" opens with some spacey synthesizer playing and I thought I was began to look forward to a kind of space-rock/jazz fusion but that sound soon gave way to the guitar and flute. There is nothing wrong with the playing on the album, the guitar work is good and the flute is pretty, but overall the music seemed to lack sparkle - it didn't have that special "something", that magical and sometimes unquantifiable ingredient that makes the difference between a good and a great album.

It is a good album - no more. I struggled to maintain interest during the couple of times I've heard it and suspect that Tanger are more enjoyable to listen to live.
