James Galway Collaborates On New Album With Tiempo Libre
Published June 6, 2008

Hailed widely as the “Lord of the Flute,” Sir James Galway has garnered countless awards and honors and has sold more than 30 million records and recorded over 60 CDS. Yet it is the mark of a true innovator that at the age of 70, Galway still strives to do what has never been done before with his music.

 

For his first recording for the Sony Classical label, scheduled for release on September 16, he will record music from the jazz suites of Claude Bolling. Collaborating with him on this new recording titled O’Reilly Street is two-time Grammy nominated recording artists Tiempo Libre, originally from Cuba.  Tiempo Libre is known for its sizzling timba music, a high-energy combination of Latin jazz and Cuban son.

 

When Galway was first introduced to Tiempo Libre’s music, he was impressed with the arrangements and the sophistication of the sound and, having been looking for his next collaboration, the idea of a project with Tiempo Libre began to take shape. 

 

Inspired by these Cuban musicians whose feet are planted in two worlds of classical and timba, Galway saw a supreme mixture of virtuosity, musicianship and an irresistible, joyful style.  At a time when boundary crossing albums are often just marketing gimmicks, O’Reilly Street is a true encounter between one of classical music’s premiere instrumentalists in collaboration with one of Cuba’s most exciting ensembles.
