Pianist Christian Sands assembles a fine cast of players to support this well crafted album. ‘Facing Dragons’ will appeal to those that appreciate contemporary Modern Jazz. It is full of thoughtful pieces all penned by Sands save for a cover of the Beatles’ ‘Yesterday’. ‘Rebel Music’ kicks the album off in fluent style, whilst ‘Fight For Freedom’ has an urgent modal vibe to it. There is a Latin vibe to the fast percussive ‘Sangueo Soul’ whilst ‘Frankenstein’ is a strong modern composition with Keyon Harold’s trumpet vying with Sand’s flowing grand piano. The intricate ‘Samba De Vela’ is a delight, a gem amongst many on this recommended Jazz CD.
