Modern South American
Dutch Magazine Jazzism

Jaime Rodríguez, the Colombian singer / percussionist, who has been living in The Netherlands for years, is known by many people from Rumbatá; and Rumbatá; Big Band, he played salsa and other South American music with. At this album this Latin music is embedded in a modern dance sound, with a lot of percussion of course. With eminent guitarists as Paul Willemsen, Leonardo Amuedo and Daniel de Moraes and Zuco's Stefan Schmid on Fender Rhodes and keyboard, Rodríguez has managed to produce an extremely pleasant, swinging album.
Most of the songs have been written by Rodríguez himself, such as Lola, which might become a hit. For me, Dame brings up associations with Carlos Santana, also because of the guitar solo of Santiago Jimenez.
Of course the rich musical treasury of Colombia is an infinite source of inspiration for Rodríguez. The Cumbia in Aé is very thrilling, a true dance hit, just like La Cumbia Cienaguera, or Pacífico Remix, in which you will recognize traditional music of the Pacific coast of Colombia. Bonito, and the great Te Sale Fuego, are more quiet songs. But after this last song the extremely exciting Cazuela E' Tollo as well Las Penas De Maruja will make you go crazy.

CD Jaime Rodríguez Band – La Loma De La Cruz. (Camina Records)
Dutch Magazine Slagwerkkrant

Done! His new album is perfect, the album of Jaime Rodriguez, percussionist and singer who has been living in The Netherlands for years and is especially famous for his band Rumbatá. The versatility of his Colombian roots sound throughout the vivid, smooth melodies and of course the solid percussion. The whole mix is so well balanced that it sounds perfect. Mark de Jong’s drums are just as tight and effective. It grooves like madness! Quite a lot of guitarists, from Leonardo Amuedo to Santiago Jimenez, make you think of Santana. The song Pacifico was recorded in Cali, Colombia, and features the Colombian marimba. And of course there is lot of Cumbia, Colombia’s national pride. The Tambor Alegre, a sound in between Conga and Djembre, can be heard throughout this album. Rodriguez has been working at this album for a few years and the result is astonishing. Soon there will be a live performance.
