    With O'REILLY STREET, James Galway and Tiempo Libre have delivered a genuinely fresh experiment in crossover collaboration. The opening selections are drawn from Claude Bolling's two suites for flute and jazz piano. Movements from each suite are used, and even beyond that Galway treats the music freely, introducing octave transpositions and new transitions. The aim is to carve out a space for the musicians of Tiempo Libre, whose percussionist Leandro Gonzlez supports Bolling's flute lines with an offbeat layer and then ramps up the polyrhythms together with bandleader and pianist Jorge Gmez in more heavily Cuban interludes. The music succeeds precisely because the musicians don't try to merge structures that are fundamentally different; the weave is loose. The three-way style fusion of classical, jazz, and Afro-Cuban percussion could easily have been gimmicky, but Galway and Tiempo Libre work it out carefully and intelligently in this lively and enjoyable crossover release

  • Critic Reviews
    JazzTimes (p.79) - "What's new is an Afro-Cuban beat and feel courtesy of the Cuban timba quartet Tiempo Libre....The seven titles for the Bolling suite are refreshed by the added Afro-Cuban elements as much as they are enhanced by Galway's richly expressive tone and humanly emotional phrasing."
