TEXT BY: DEREK TAYLOR (EXCERPT OF THE LINER NOTES FOR THE CD "INTUICIÓN Y RESISTENCIA")

Free improvisation versus free jazz: The debate has fulminated among controversy-prone pundits for the better part of four decades. Its origins are largely attributable to a contingent of enterprising Europeans who sought to separate their music from American associations, sort of a Declaration of Independence with the colonists operating from the opposite side of the Pond. By now, such partisans have diminished to a paltry few and inclusion is the reigning ideological currency in place of dissension. For saxophonist Remi Álvarez, the categories are hardly adversarial nor are they absolute. His music tills liberally through each tradition.
