Last Friday, the Fabian Almazan Trio put out a new album, This Land Abounds with Life.
The trio comprises Almazan (piano), Linda May Han Oh (acoustic/electric bass) and Henry Cole (drums). This 12-track album is the follow-up to Alcanza, their 2017 album as part of the larger Rhizome ensemble.
The album is guided by Almazan’s Cuban heritage (particularly in the songs “Bola de Nieve” and “The Poets”), as well as his love for nature and an enduring concern for the planet.
“Because I am Cuban, I examine the issues that trouble society with the island as a canvas, but the title This Land Abounds with Life applies to all places on Earth,” he said in a recent interview with Something Else!. “I celebrate life everywhere on Earth, and the sense of urgency I feel towards doing the right thing to ensure its health for future generations.”
