It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

RE: Latin Jazz Grammy Re-Instated!!

Been listening to a lot of Latin Jazz (celebrating!;). The thing about this genre is that it mimics Jazz in that it's such a small word for such a vast universe of music! Big Band/small band, electric/acoustic, and when adding in the cultural influences it expands exponentially! For the adventurous music-lover, there's gold in them thar hills!;)

I'll list a few that are in current rotation:

Wayne Wallace Latin Jazz Quintet - To Here From There
Steve Kroon - Without A Doubt
Sammy Figueroa - Urban Nature
Roberto Quintero - Transmission
Paoli Meijas - Jazzambia
Michel Camilo - Mano A Mano
Mark Levine - Off & On (Plays the music of Moacir Santos)
Maraca & His Latin Jazz All-Stars - Live In Havana
John Santos Sextet - Filosofia Caribena
Interactivo - Cubanos Por El Mundo
Hilario Duran Big Band - From The Heart
Dafnis Prieto - Taking The Soul For A Walk

I truly could just go on and on....all these records feature fantastic music recorded exceptionally well! I've also found that the ladies (regardless of race, girls just have their ears screwed on right!) usually love el Jazz Latino!!;)
