Virella's sophomore solo effort entitled "Unbroken" is a tranquil assembly of jazz instrumentals. Bearing heavy influences of rock and Latin flavors, Virella devises a very tasty concoction of impressive guitar-driven instrumentals. The Latin-infused "Paraiso" stands out as extremely refreshing to the ears with its mesmerizing lead electric melody blended with pacifying acoustic guitars and percussion. Adding to these soundscapes are skillfully composed piano arrangements. "Back in the Day" switches vibes, driven by beautiful sax melodies and groovy drum beats. From start to finish, "Unbroken" keeps listeners engaged and compelled. Moreover, the production of this CD is superb! Fans of Jeff Beck and Mike Stern will thoroughly enjoy this serene soundscape!
