New York (I-Newswire) March 20, 2013 - Carli Muñoz, critically acclaimed Puerto Rican jazz pianist/composer, has released his highly anticipated rock debut LP, “In My Soul.” The album is composed of 11 tracks making it a wonderfully comprehensive release for Muñoz’s first collection of rock music. The inception of the record stretches back to the 1960swhen Muñoz first composed its heart and “soul.”
“It was cathartic to revisit the work on ‘In My Soul,’” muses the prolific composer. “I had these pieces for decades. I never talked about them, but they haunted me. They’re the heart of my abilities as a pop composer.”
The compositions of “In My Soul” have a broad range in scope and tone, sometimes belting out like the music of Heart or Fleetwood Mac and often bearing a strong similarity to Elton John’s more energetic material, such as the power-pop hit, “Bennie and the Jets.” Also present are doses of country-western (not the watered-down, modern pop-rock variety, but the western kind) and 40s- and 50s-era blues. Muñoz’s vocals are a deep, crackling charcoal color, a cross between Waylon Jennings and Leonard Bernstein. Muñoz’ piano playing is masterful and full of passion, the songwriting careful, brilliant and refined and his natural singing voice is one of the album’s preeminent qualities.
Muñoz’s decision to record these rock compositions now stems partly from the tenacity of the music itself. Through decades of performing and recording jazz with some of the world’s finest players, the songs kept calling to him. The music on this album appeals to the youthful, adventurous facets of Carli Muñoz’ character. “Once I dreamt that I was a rock n’ roll star under the moonlight,” he says, about Track 5 of his album. “Rock n’ roll and moonlight happened to mix well for me because I was a child growing up in the early rock era, and at the same time a hopeless romantic dreaming of dancing with the girl of my dreams to Guy Lombardo beneath the moon.”
Muñoz has played or recorded with notables such as The Beach Boys, George Benson, Les McCann, Chico Hamilton, Wilson Pickett, Wayne Henderson, Charles Lloyd, Peter Cetera and Evie Sands. In December of 1998 Carli opened Carli’s Fine Bistro and Piano, in Puerto Rico. The bistro is a world-class, fine-dining and live-jazz restaurant where Muñoz himself often performs.
“In My Soul” is one of the most refined rock albums the industry has seen in years, chock full of intelligence, emotion and groove. Music fans can wrap their ears around Carli Muñoz’s one-and-only rock masterpiece beginning February 8, 2013, available online worldwide.
