Fiona's Comments

Carmen's (mucho) Mambo, takes you back to the 50s and 60s, if you were there the first time that is. For the rest of us, well shake it and see how it moves you. If you have a penchant for the Nuyorican Soul vibe be moved.

About the Album

The Latin Jazz Collective is a new project conceived by Lary Barilleau, a Seattle based percussionist, composer and award winning educator. Carmen's Mambo features the original music of Grammy nominated musician Lary Barilleau, Grammy winning arranger and trombonist Doug Beavers and multi-instrumentalist Jay Thomas. The unique mixture of jazz melodies and harmonies along with Afro-Caribbean rhythms reflects the classic sound of Latin jazz. The CD was recorded over a 2 year span in San Francisco, New York and Seattle. All arrangements and orchestration by Doug Beavers.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
