Review

If a Nomad is someone who walks all over the globe aimlessly, then Jesse Cook's album is improperly titled. There's nothing aimless about it; Cook's fiery flamenco style is still the heart of it all and he's more in sync with his guests than most new age artists can be. Showing the proper amount of restraint while accompanying the BoDeans or former Rembrandts singer Danny Wilde, Cook gives the pop stars better material and more freedom than they're used to. It's a shame that these wonderful singers haven't gotten this respect before, because their poignant performances here reveal talents that aren't properly showcased in the pop world. Flora Purim gives the light "Maybe" just the right amount of sweetness, and the passionate vocals of Montse Cortes return Cook to his flamenco roots. The truly atmospheric moments are supplied by numerous Egyptian and electronic touches that Cook uses with sincerity and respect. Nomad flows like an album should, with each track complementing the next, and Cook has proven himself a mindful producer. Despite being recorded at stops all over the world and a diverse list of guest stars, Nomad ends up being his most cohesive and rewarding album. ~ David Jeffries
