Review From Latin Beat Magazine (http://www.latinbeatmagazine.com/issues/06_12/Reviews_06_12.pdf)



WALDO VALENZUELA The Light of the Sixth Sun (Waldoval Entertainment)


The Chilean, L.A.-based guitarist/sound engineer/music producer Waldo Valenzuela releases his third bandleading CD “The Light of the Sixth Sun.” This self-taught guitarist lays down a vibrant, self-produced repertoire of original jazz-fusion scores. Backed by a distinguished cast of players from Los Angeles and other locations, Valenzuela displays his talents across various musical territories, from smooth jazz to contemporary fusion to world music modalities. Brilliant breaks, drops, and solos placed at appropriate spots throughout the selections by Valenzuela and his accomplices make for a pleasant and distinctive listening experience. Favorite tracks include the hard-edge “Prodigy,” the funky “Seven Seas,” and the jazzy “Hotel Camarillo.” —Rudy Mangual

Hi, Readers,


Here in LA, I have been lucky to meet talented musicians, producers, and engineers almost on a daily basis. Sometimes I even meet people who are all in one, and such is the case ofWaldo Valenzuela.


The Chilean-born guitar player just released The Light of the Sixth Sun, a collection of eclectic original instrumentals that he produced and engineered. It features some outstanding players, and is a great example of a very well executed independent recording.


If you are a fan of jazz-fusion, you will not be disappointed with this album. The sounds were all excellently recorded, and the parts were all masterfully played. The rhythms he imbues the compositions with reflect his Latin-American heritage, and he has enviable chops that he combines with catchy melodies. Check it out on CD Baby now!
