Great playing by great players
Sounds of Timeless Jazz Review

When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate. That fate appeared as Aura, a well-known band on the Tribeca scene comprised of Tony Viscardo, Bob Magnuson, David Jackson, and Frank Valdes. Their debut recording for No Comment Productions KINDRED SOULS, also features Emedin Rivera who creates a tremendous Latin jazz force on seven brand new songs written or co-written by Viscardo and Magnuson. The CD opens with "Spanish Night" a descarga featuring fiery Latin rhythms that will immediately have you on the dancefloor. The song is followed by the quiet eeriness of "La Noche Anterior" (The Night Before 09/10/01), which represents the way it was and the calm before the storm. This song provides nearly six minutes of creative production qualities that provide an innocent, pleasant serenity fram removed from what lay ahead the following day. From Viscardo on ambient guitar and Magnuson playing a Yamaha WX7 wind synth muted trumpet to the acoustic bass of Jackson and the percussive mastery of Emedin Rivera, the song stirs the heart and soul. "Kindred Souls" offers both virtuoso soloing and the soul of things through Viscardo's musical self-portrait. His guitar work is inspired and each note reflects, in diverse ways, the character of its maker.
