Title - Chasing Horizons
Artist - Russ Hewitt

For those not in the know, this new album Chasing Horizons from Russ Hewitt is an experience. It is a 10-track journey through samba, montuno, milonga, fatback, rumba Flamencom guajira, and four-on-the-floor grooves!

It begins with his breezy, fluid and melodic Allende, where if you close your eyes, you might just hear the rustling of palm leaves as you sit on your mental warm sandy beach of choice!

With a total of four tracks with Hewitt in the spotlight, he is equal to the task of making the album so inviting, perhaps more so than anything he has done in the past.

1. Allende
2. Chasing Horizons (feat. Nuno Bettencourt)
3. Vivir Libre (feat. Marty Friedman)
4. Amor Perdido (feat. Bucharest All-Star Orchestra)
5. Luminous
6. Sunset Samba (feat. Jorge Strunz)
7. Luna
8. Cubalia Cafe (feat. Ardeshir Farah)
9. Serein
10. Return To Simitai (feat. Tri Nguyen)

This vibrantly alive and wholly musically compelling new album opens on the beautifully free flowing Allende and smoothly follows that up with the vibrantly titular Chasing Horizons (featuring the expert guitar work of Extreme’s very own Nuno Bettencourt), and then the tempo is taken up a further notch on the effervescent Vivir Libre (featuring Marty Friedman), the aching balladry of Amor Perdido (featuring the always impressive Bucharest All-Star Orchestra) is next, and then comes the languishingly ornate musings within the aptly-entitled Luminous.

Up next is one of my own personal favorites from this new recording, the dulcet hipsway of Sunset Samba (featuring Jorge Strunz) and the veritably shimmering Luna, and they are in turn backed by the drum-led orchestrations within Cubalia Cafe (featuring Ardeshir Farah), the album rounding out with the mellow Serein, coming to a close on the lightly playful Return To Simitai (featuring Tri Nguyen).
