REVIEWS and AWARDS
Daniel Deaguero  INFUSION 
 
[THE SMOOTH JAZZ RIDE-CD REVIEW 7/22/13]  Talk about your smooth jazz. Guitarist Daniel Deaguero, with his latest release titled Infusion, ushers in smooth like one would welcome an old friend into his/her home. The CD is fluid, tender where it needs to be, and smoky on other tracks.

Over the span of two decades, Deaguero has recorded contemporary jazz, Latin jazz, and rock/pop fusion albums, demonstrating his diverse skill and firm understanding of the spirit and feel of music. All of that can be heard here on this latest effort.

This album, for the most part, has some very stirring and strong material and, while I won’t say that I wholly embrace all of the material, that which did capture my ear really captured it. Standout tracks include the jazzy, Latin/Brazilian-laced “Street Talk,” the sax-tight and mellow “Mr. Smooth” (featuring BB Reyes providing the sax honors), the cool, laid-back and slightly bluesy “Misty Morning,” the mid-tempo tune “Touch My Soul” which boasts lots of quality and expressive sax work by Reyes, as well as searing lead guitar moments (here’s where the rock fusion element makes its entrance).

There’s also the suave, well-phrased “Peak Love” (another quality tune to which Reyes adds an exclamation point), the Latinesque “Sugar Man,” and “The Hood” with its heavy Hammond B3 presence (courtesy of Michael James) and Deaguero’s fiery guitar action.

All in all, it is pretty clear to me that Deaguero sought to intrigue, stimulate, and captivate with this eclectic mix of jazz.  I’d say he succeeded.  – Ronald Jackson

PRESS RELEASE: July 1, 2013
Jazz Radio world-wide welcomes Daniel Deaguero’s “INFUSION” CD on 7/1/13, as Daniel Deaguero kicks off his fifth jazz effort with his signature fluid jazz solos, accentuated by the exceptionally talented saxophonist BB Reyes and a killer latin percussion section.

Contemporary Jazz recording artist Daniel Deaguero storms into jazz radio this week with his “INFUSION” CD, an eleven track eclectic collection of tracks "infused" with multiple genres including Contemporary Jazz, Cool/Nu/Smooth Jazz, Latin Jazz and Rock/Jazz fusion.

Daniel says, “I wanted this project to be different from past releases... the tone is a little warmer and the mood is still upbeat.... I had to have a little more latino edge on some of the tracks - Sweet Thang, Street Talk and Sugar Man... I played a nylon-string guitar on a couple of tracks -Infusion and Street Talk.. Mr Smooth has a bit of an R&B feel... there are two more "contemporary jazz" tunes - Misty Morning & Dawnbreaker... I included a couple of Rock/Jazz fusion tracks that are a bit more intense - Touch My Soul and The Hood... then of course several "nu jazz" tracks round it out... but they're not-too-smooth.. BB and the guys brought a lot of energy to the project... overall, I'm pleased with the way it turned out and I hope everyone enjoys listening to it."

Daniel's past four jazz releases have received critical acclaim by Billboard magazine and numerous Music Association awards - early critiques indicate "Infusion" may top them all.

This summer Daniel is writing material for a new band he will be producing - Jazzville Station... watch for their debut CD in the fall 2013 timeframe.
