===========================================================


"For many people, Latin music means tango and bossa nova with perhaps a bit of salsa thrown in. But there is a whole other world of distinct music styles and rhythms in Latin America. Nojechowicz explores many of them in his compositions on this excellent release, on which he wrote all the tunes except one. He especially utilizes the complex dance rhythms of Argentina and Uruguay, along with the more lifting sound of Brazil – which he credits as a mayor musical influence. You can hear echoes of the dark sound of Piazolla as he sometimes weaves in and out of different rhythms in the same piece. All this is overlayed with the influence of his long residence in the US. His band, El Eco, has long been active in the jazz circuit and the thriving latin jazz scene in the northeast. Their playing on this CD is tight and assured. This is true world music at its best."

"The high quotient of both jazz and exotic Latin American rhythms, performed with warmth and deep understanding, makes El Eco's Two Worlds uncommonly attractive."
