Co-led by Dave Samuels and Dave Valentin, the Caribbean Jazz Project gives the jazz listening audience a great listening treat with their release, THE GATHERING. Everything about this collection is innovative and imaginative.
There are 9 songs on this wonderful collection of Latin Jazz. Among the songs are found "Rendezvous," "Stolen Moments," "See You In A Minute," "The Gathering," "Bemsha Swing," "Libertad," and "The Path." The audience will find each song performance sparkles with imagination and a keen sense of shared continuity.
Paquito D'Rivera appears on alto saxophone and performs with verve and style. Dario Eskenazi gives memorable piano solo work. If you are a fan of the Latin Jazz sounds of the Caribbean Jazz Project, you will fall in love with this musical outing. The jazz performances and songs are topnotch.
Each performance is enjoyable. Highly recommended.
