About the Album

This is the title track from the Paul Colombo Group new record "Rio Crystal". The record has eight original songs, seven by Paul and one by Ron Thomas, with various styles from Latin, to swing, to fusion, to blues, to ballads. This track, written by Paul, has some influences from the time Paul spent in Miami. All the various friends he had there and the music he heard- from Costa Rica, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, and, obviously, the Cuban descendants - gave him a rich background for the nuances of Latin rhythms. This tunes has a special bridge section that brings to life the whole musical experience.

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!
