Midwest Record (Chris Spector) A world wise/world traveled guitarist with multi-culti sensibilities
travels the Abercrombie/Metheny route to world soundings. An expert and being laid back without falling over, Hernandez brings his crew with south of the border sensibilities right to the
fore of contemporary, progressive guitar work that relies on features other than pyrotechnic ...
All About Jazz (Jack Bowers) Of all the instruments in a group or orchestra, none has a broader or
more variable sonic profile than the guitar. When it is played properly, with earnestness and sincerity, a guitar can move the listener to tears; when it is used, however, is to elicit sounds
that are best described as disquieting and cacophonous, that is another matter entirely. ...
Downbeat (Scott Yanow) 4-STARS Born in Mexico, guitarist Hugo Fernandez spent time studying
in the U.S. before settling in Spain. Cosmogram features Fernandez and his international quartet (Cuban Ariel Bringuez on tenor and soprano, bassist Antonio Miguel from Spain and American
drummer Antonio Sanchez who also originated from Mexico) performing eight of the leader's p ...
All About Jazz (Edward Blanco) Mexican-born Hugo Fernandez is a modern jazz guitarist who follows up
his well-received debut album Origenes (CDbaby, 2012) with the new modern-styled Cosmogram featuring eight sophisticated original compositions in a generally warm-natured set of light and

2005 completou o mestrado em "Estudos de Jazz" na University of New Orleans. Apesar de to ...
Jazz Weekly (George W. Harris) Guitarist Hugo Fernandez defers to tenor and soprano saxist Ariel
Bringuez quite a bit here on a quartet session along with the energetic rhythm team of Antonio Miguel/b and Antonio Sanchez/dr. There's a bit of a tribal war dance drum beat on as the team
sounds a bit indie-rockish on "Reconciliation" and there's a rockish beat on "Sublime" that fea ...
JazzTimes (Travis Rogers, Jr.) Right from the start, throw out any ideas of comparing Hugo Fernandez
to anybody. Comparisons to Pat Metheny and John Abercrombie have been made but that presupposition is going to make you miss the absolute thrill of Fernandez' album "Cosmogram." This is
original. This is fresh. This caught me by surprise. Through my first listening of "Cosmogr ...
The New York City Jazz Record (Tom Greenland) Guitarist Hugo Fernandez, originally
from Mexico, now based in Madrid, has released Cosmogram, his second date as a leader, with the help of countryman drummer Antonio Sanchez, Cuban saxophonist Ariel Bringuez and Spanish
