HORIZON SUNSET

#Bloomerangs

 

OVERVIEW

 

Big Round Records presents HORIZON SUNSET, the debut record from international music collective #Bloomerangs. The group’s 22 participating musicians – hailing from the United States, Uruguay, Argentina and Spain– all blend their musical backgrounds on the album, which composer and producer Rodrigo Cotelo described as an “ode to endings that lead to new beginnings” to further expand #Bloomerangs vision of “integrating different cultures and sounds as an expression vehicle to a common universal language through music.”

 

In this vein, HORIZON SUNSET transcends limits of the imagination, searching for new vistas in a modern global world. The album candidly displays this approach, as it features a diverse array of sounds and instruments, often with several guest artists playing with the set of featured musicians of the album. These sounds range from the banjo of the smaller quartet in Pluralize-It to the accordion in the larger ensemble in Man B and the harmonica in It Shall Pass…

 

True to #Bloomerangs interests, HORIZON SUNSET also combines several genre elements – from jazzy big band ensemble in Low Ride to funky bass grooves in Pensive and Ten and Nine to an upbeat rock approach in Holly Molly. The instrumental foundations never sound fragmented from each other; the album’s many different sounds blend together to form a seamless, original voice to reflect the vision of #Bloomerangs.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

 

Known throughout Uruguay as a composer, performer, producer, and collaborator, the multi-talented Rodrigo Cotelo showcases his compositional and bandleading skills on HORIZON SUNSET, guiding international music collective #Bloomerangs through a diverse collection of multi-genre compositions.

 

HORIZON SUNSET features bassist Marco Messina, who acted as co-producer, co-arranged the compositions, and co-composed two songs.

 

Among other collaborators, HORIZON SUNSET includes featured performances by drummer Tato Bolognini; saxophonist Ramiro Flores; and multi-instrumentalist Chris Parker, who plays trombone, euphonium, snare, and cymbals on HORIZON SUNSET. Additionally, the album features trumpeter Daniel Zehringer, who previously released JOURNEYMEN'S SONGS: THE MUSIC OF STEVEN WINTEREGG on Navona Records.

 

Latin Jazz Network praised #Bloomerangs musical director and founder Rodrigo Cotelo’s musicianship and compositions on his solo album Ser Sonido, describing him as an “excellent guitarist” who knows how to surround himself with a “stellar cast of musicians.” Looking forward to Rodrigo’s future releases, LJN added that he “seems destined for greater things”
