Avi Rosenfeld, is as Gifted Musician/Composer/Arranger as he is Prolific and as of the time of this Review a total of Seven Albums exist in the 'Kompozitsia' Series. This Review, of course, focuses specifically on Number V.
Each of Edition of Komposzitsia has a Unique Personality and are not simple Continuations on a Theme. In this Offering, Rosenfeld's Iconic Classic Rock Sound is still very much Present but more Mingled with Blues while Vocal Tracks have a Stronger English Presence. Likewise, in the Instrumental Works, Track #10. 'Ay Caramba', a Highly Skilled Performance demonstrates the Artist's Extreme Guitar Skills.
Musically, virtually every Instrument that comprises a Modern Rock Band can be heard with Generous Electric Guitar which backs the Sound of Style Elements from Rock to Traditional Israeli-Middle Eastern to Country Western and Middle of the Road Adult Contemporary Pop. In short, if this Artist/Band were a Gas Station it would Definitely Be Full Service!
Track #1. 'Nahag Mirutsim( Race Driver)', is a Vigorous, Uptempo Rock-Swing(Big Band) Piece with an Unexpectedly Lively Piano Riff mixed in with the Classic Rock Sound and Exciting Hebrew Vocal.
Track #2. 'In My Winter Skies', has English Lyrics with a Subtle Western( as Western Ballad )Style and Mellow Acoustic Guitar and Percussion. The Vocalization is Earnest and Head Nod inducing. Electric Guitar enters the mix in the Song's latter stage and gives the work a New Depth with its Piercing and Minor Chord Rich Manner.
Track #5. 'Keren Shemesh(Ray of Sun)', Features Hebrew Lyrics set against a Retro EZL Pop and Country-Western Vocie. Listen for Clarinet to take the Role usually reserved for 'Fiddle' and mix with a Traditional Israeli Theme. Unique, Clever and very Fun to Hear.
Track #10. 'Ay Caramba', is an Electric Guitar Anthem Supreme. It's Highly Complex fashion is similar to Fellow Jamendo Artist, Black Alexxx. The Piece is Polished, Dynamic and Shakes the Rafters! And as Good as the Solo Sections are--when the Guitars Go Chorus the Resulting Harmony is nothing less than Magical.
Overall, a Stunner of Old-New-Mixed-Style-Culture-Feeling and the List Goes On... :D
