The Extraordinary Love Story Of Aye Aye And Fedor

Ana Isabel Ordonez is a journey-woman jazz advocate, writer, illustrator, poet and much more, who does everything with absolute passion. Besides her adventurous work and collaboration with jazz titan Cecil Taylor and late poet/political activist Amiri Baraka, avant garde trumpeter Herb Robertson, late poet, humanitarian and political activist Trudy Morse, iconic Marshall Allen of Sun Ra's Arkestra as well as amazing figures like Elliot Levin, Evan Parker a.m.o., she's also known for her philanthropic work and manifold collaboration as impresario for various figures in the Jazz world. She delivers the goods even if it is without the fanfare given to lesser storytellers. Notable and memorable also were her events at Le Poison Rouge MC'd by Bill Cosby and NY1 anchorwoman Cheryl Wills, as well as her altruistic endeavours with Chris Lawford, member of American Kennedy's family royalty. In the active course of her career she has commingled Biology, history, jazz and poetry.

Ordonez now writes/illustrates children's books and works on theatre pieces. In the children's book department she's innovating again, calling up singer Dean Bowman and pianist Michiel Braam to do an utterly alluring, compelling music and narration album based on her book "The Extraordinary Love Story of Aye Aye and Fedor." This musical-narrative sequence is now being choreographed in New York by Virginie Mecene and the prestigious Martha Graham Academy and simultaneously in Cape Town by the esteemed Jazz Dance Theatre with Sifiso Kweyama as choreographer. All this is in preparation for shows to honour Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu.

Dean Bowman is a singer known and praised worldwide for his angelic voice. He began singing in church and has appeared in many releases and on stage, working in both gospel and jazz styles.  The New York native regularly performs all around the world.  

Michiel Braam is a Dutch pianist and educator, director of the Jazz Pop Music and Dance Department in Niemejen, Netherlands. An absolute maverick on the piano and in his compositions, he's frequently seen in jazz festivals and jazz clubs the world round.

Ordonez's tale captures the veteran vocalist Bowman in an intimate performance that showcases his smooth, honey voice and winning delivery. His narration of Ordonez's love tale never sounds phony or forced and the tale itself exemplifies directly such an authenticity.

This album features the group eBraam performing a set of  chestnuts, namely Braam's  own jazz-rock compositions :  "Introduction",  "Aye Aye At Work",  "Small Meets Big",  "Prison vs Dreamy Freedom",  "Restful Peaceful",  "Bad Weather",  "Enclosure To Enclosure", "Escape",  "Happy March",  and "Love". Braam manages to inject the requisite skill and enthusiasm into the sequences to make every track fresh and cheerful. Each one is given a nice tempo treatment in a breezy ride from start to finish. Bowman adds his share of the soothsayer's  touch to the whole endeavour and his work is surely a highlight of it all. 

The album comes with lovely illustrations from the book, very disarmingly child-like. The narrative is enhanced and fleshed-out via the weighty eBraam musicianship, including drummer Dirk-Peter Kölsch, guitarists Pieter Douma and Jorg Lehnardt, and harpist Ulrike von Meyer.This is a wild, original and adventurous new Ordonez project which ought to be listened to, read and seen . The quick-witted Ana Isabel seem to be reborn bigger and better every seven years!
Brilliant project and release!
