The Art of Latin Jazz
By Oscar Hernandez
A cheerful ray of sun. No shrill birds.
Now in the middle of a towering career as founder & leader of the Spanish Harlem Orchestra, musical director for Rubén Blades, and pianist, arranger and producer for some of the biggest names in Contemporary Latin music, three-time Grammy Winner Oscar Hernández takes a moment for himself and his working quintet with his new recording, "The Art of Latin Jazz." Pulling from several lifetimes worth of musical experiences, Hernandez penned ten originals to perform with his Los Angeles-based ensemble, featuring the legendary saxophonist Justo Almario and special guest, San Diego trumpeter Gilbert Castellanos, along with drummer Jimmy Branly, bassist Jorge "Sawa" Perez, and percussionist Christian Moraga.
