From ContemporaryJazz.Com

Another review from ContemporaryJazz.Com of Grammy and Hoku nominated jazz instrumentalist, Sugartown Record's Aaron Aranita. I like what my good friend Heminway Jasmin has to say about Aaron, "He's a monster!"

Aaron Aranita
Don't Stop The Feeling
[Sugartown Records]
Review by LB
Date: Oct, 2005 [14 Tracks 74:52 Total-Spin-Time]

This cd is for those who are looking for a taste of retro with a hint of Brazilian influenced jazz. “Don’t Stop the Feeling” is a collection of sorts. It spans the years of 1987-2005 and includes several tracks from Aranita’s “Eastbound” album. All 14 tracks are original music by Aranita. Since I had never heard of him, this project was a great introduction for me into his music genius.

Aaron Aranita is a superb alto and soprano sax player who even dabbles a little with flutes, keyboards, programming and clarinets. The music covers a wide range of moods due to it spanning three decades. Listeners are given the opportunity to sample different styles of arrangements, which include fusion, contemporary and smooth style of jazz. Even though it took over 17 years to get this project put together, everyone’s playing on the music sounds fresh and dynamic. There are many talented guest musicians with notable mention going out to Valery Ponomarev on trumpet and Peter Horvath on keyboards.

There is a lot of music to digest here, which is always good. “Don’t Stop the Feeling” is Aaron’s attempt to spread love, harmony, and peace through his music and this listener feels he has accomplished that mission.
