Chris Washburne and SYOTOS’ latest release, Land of Nod, is their most adventurous. It pushes the genre of Latin Jazz into uncharted waters that combine raw musical innovation with an overtly strong political commentary on our contemporary world. This record resounds a postmodern Latin jazz that embraces dissonance, weaving contemporary up-tempo beats with a driving sound that suits it intended purpose well. As Washburne writes in the liner notes, "Dance to the rhythms. Moving your body can be an act of resistance. Let it be so." This is the fourth CD on Jazzheads for this artist.
