At the head of a dazzling trio, surrounded by guests, guitarist Yotam Silberstein presents an album that sums up his musical loves and draws its colors from different regions of the planet. Frevo from Pernambuco, samba from Rio de Janeiro, camdombé from Uruguay or chamamé from Argentina, punctuated by stops in Andalusia and in the Middle East, "Universos" is the radiant record of a world jazzman who has won respect everywhere where he put his guitar.
"Yotam Silberstein is carving out a sure place for himself in the ranks of supple, subtle and masterful electric guitarists on the jazz scene who kill with kindness."
"This fantastic album was recorded in New York City, but its influences range from across the globe. Yotam Silberstein has been a native of the jazz mecca since 2005, emerging as a key talent on the contemporary jazz scene."
"One of the best guitarists we have ever heard... Wrapped inside a Mediterranean whirligig of sunshine sounds like a new standard (the melody, stretch your imagination and listen hard...)"
—Stephen Graham, Marlbank
"Never boring, Universos is accessible, erudite and easy-going and a great album to support good vibes during festivities of all kinds."
—All About Jazz (★★★★)
"Silberstein has hit another one out of the park with his new recording."
—Jazz In Europe
"Precision of both performance and documentation marks this new disc."
