Panama News Dic. 2002
Carlos Ubarte blows the canon
by Eric Jackson

"...the very existence of the term "jazz standards" implies a canon. We could still argue around the edges of jazz, and how far toward those limits the canon extends. But nobody who was upstairs at the Casa Gongora on the evening of November 22 could reasonably argue that the Carlos Ubarte Jazz Trio --- Ubarte on saxes and flute, drummer Aníbal De León and bassist Papín Florez, with a few guests standing in during the course of the evening --- was playing outside the canon. ...In fact, this was almost as much a lecture as a concert, and an intergenerational experience with members of Panamanian jazz's older generation gathered at one end of the room and a bunch of conservatory students seated at the other, with a multi-generational adult crowd with a slight female majority taking up the rest of the seats. The proverbial torch has been and was being passed, and Ubarte, who easily has a couple of decades to go until the gray starts setting in, didn't fumble it.

...You can only give so much of a sampling in one night's work. Carlo Ubarte and friends gave us enough to reassure the elders that today's Panamanian jazz scene is in competent hands, and to show the youngsters what it's all about.
