Caribbean Jazz Project

For a special concert at the Central Park Zoo in 1993, vibraphonist Dave Samuels (who doubles on marimba) put together the Caribbean Jazz Project for the first time. Teaming Samuels with the brilliant (and pioneering) jazz steel drummer Andy Narell and saxophonist Paquito d'Rivera (who alternates between alto, clarinet, and soprano), and eventually joined by pianist Dario Eskenazi, bassist Oscar Stagnaro, and drummer Mark Walker, the group quickly developed a unique and highly appealing sound. Describing their goal as "a musical tour of the Caribbean," the band also ventures musically to several South American countries and Dizzy Gillespie-era New York. The Caribbean Jazz Project has toured on a part-time basis (recording a couple of fine sets for Heads Up) ever since. The band released its first live album, Here and Now, on Concord Jazz in 2005. The studio album Mosaic followed a year later, also on Concord. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

This is absolutely beautiful music.Of course, it is the type of music that I love listening to. It is so alive and inventive but that is what jazz is about isn't it!!!
Not only did they forget Dave Valentin, but apparently Dave Samuels is not even in Pandora database...
Loved Syro Gyra, saw them in person, brought their cds and fell in love with Dave Samuels from his first non Syro album Del Sol. I almost only played their music exclusively. The best musica in the world!
Whoever wrote the Biography forgot to mention Dave Valentin, who not only played with the group on a few of the albums, but is also the guy in the picture standing next to Dave Samuels!

AL IGUAL QUE TITO PUENTE Y EDIE PALMIERI EL SE~OR DAVE SAMUEL SIEMPRE BUSCAN LOS MEJORES MUSICOS,AREG L O S MUSICALES Y SON MUY CUIDADOSOS CON EL SONIDO DE SUS PRODUCCIONES . SIMPLEMENTE SON MIS FAVORITOS HABLANDO DE JAZZ LATIN
A unique blend of percussionis t s and melodic simplicity. Rhythmic yet subtile!
Good listening but still makes you want to get up and dance.
I recently heard the piece, "Poriots of Cuba" from the Mosaic CD,and thoroughly enjoyed the prescision like dynamics of all the musicians,tr u l y great artis they all are. I will soon have this CD in my classic libray and look forward to listeing to all thier stuff. Thanks
