Rob Tardik – SYNERGY

Dec 13, 2017 - by: Hans-Bernd Hulsmann

Toronto based guitar virtuoso Rob Tardik is a regular contributor to the smooth jazz world. Without Words (2006), followed by The Right Time (2009), Balance.Energy.Laughter.Love (B.E.L.L) in 2011, Limitless (2013), and Moments (2015) are landmarks in music history. The new album Synergy (2017) exploits Tardik’s full potential, who focuses this time on teamwork and diversity.

Synergy starts with Rob’s powerful and funky guitar chords in remarkable mastery and conviction. Carson Freeman adds his colorful signature tenor sax sound. Vincent Ingala does not appear as a well-known saxophonist but shows his talents as bassist, pianist and drum programmer.

Rob Tardik – SYNERGY (2017)

Dec 13, 2017 - by: Patrick Van de Wiele

The sixth release.

It’s been two years since I reviewed ‘Moments’ and now Rob submitted me his latest album. And again he brings his own brand of contemporary jazz, with influences from different genres. The title track is also the first single, and Rob gets help from Vincent Ingala (this time not on sax) on bass, piano & drum/percussion, and from sax man Carson Freeman. It’s a melodic up-tempo track, that was co-produced by Ingala. On ‘Once in a Lifetime’ Mark Masri sings lead vocal and harmonies, and the track leans towards rock. Rob takes on flamenco for ‘Hope’, while ‘Two Much Fun’ is a lovely, relaxed track.
