Roberto Fonseca is one heck of a pianist, firmly grounded in his native Cuba, but also a child of his time, strongly influenced by the 1980s, especially Rockit-era Herbie Hancock. That's quite apparent on the first cut here, "'80s," which builds on Hancock's work from that time, heavily rhythmic -- except the rhythms are Cuban -- and moving between some outstanding piano work and some low-key Hammond for a very joyful noise. From there he switches tack completely, bringing up an Afro-Cuban soft groove for "Bibisa," working with singer Fatoumata Diawara as well as kora and ngoni. It's beautifully successful, a fusion that works elsewhere on the disc, with "Chabani" connecting the dots between Cuba and Algeria, while "Gnawa" delves into the Moroccan gnawa tradition. There's plenty of Cuba throughout, but it's at its strongest on "7 Rayos," which is an homage to Santeria. Fonseca is a towering presence all over the disc, whether he's touching blues on "Asi Es la Vida" or trading lines with electric kora on "JMF." There's a glorious fluidity to his playing, but he's also an excellent listener, working well with the other musicians. This disc will greatly enhance his reputation, and definitely raises him up several notches. © Chris Nickson /TiVo

Yesun demonstrates the artistic development of one of the most gifted pianists on the planet. The Cuban Roberto Fonseca embarked on his magical journey at an early age, learning drums at the age of four and starting piano when he was eight. Fonesca was involved with the Buena Vista Social Club, taking over from Ruben Gonzalez on piano and accompanying Ibrahim Ferrer and Omara Portuando. He has also toured with Mayra Andrade (from Cape Verde) and Fatoumata Diawara (from Mali), experiences which have - alongside his natural curiosity – inspired him to intertwine the essence of Cuban music and its African sources with those of Western classical music, jazz and urban music (rock, hip-hop, electro...). Yesun is characterised by universalism, which is mediated through elegant compositions, virtuosity and high-flying friends. Ibrahim Maalouf’s trumpet enriches Cachucha, Joe Lavano’s saxophone ignites Vivo, and the suave Cuban rapper Danay Suárez makes Cadenas thoroughly enchanting.Like a chameleon (one that is sensitive and alert), Roberto Fonseca moves from the great Fazoli piano to electric pianos (Clavinet, Rhodes, Wurlitzer), synths (Moog, Prophet) and percussion, from congas to the mic. He pays tribute to soul (Motown), Cuban music (Aggua, Mambo pa la niña, Clave) and European romanticism (Por Ti) where his piano is sumptuously tender. Supported by drummer Raúl Herrera and double bassist Yandy Martínez-Rodriguez, Fonseca’s playing is precise, bright and completely inimitable. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz
