About the Album

In 2015, Carrera Quinta returned to the studio to record a new album with a big band. Conducted by Colombian Director Ricardo Jaramillo and recorded by the Latin Grammy Award-winning engineer Mauricio Cano, the 19 piece band made Colombian music history by blending traditional Colombian music with big band jazz. The album features compositions awarded in 2013 by Bogota's department of Arts, Idartes, and one piece commissioned by Bogotá's Jazz Festival, Jazz al Parque, in 2014. The band blends Colombian traditional music from the Andean region with contemporary jazz, creating a new sound, full of intensity and power. The album was financed with an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. The mixing was made in Bogota, Colombia and the mastering in sterling Sound studios in NYC by Randy Merrill. Most of the music featured on the album was composed between 2012 and 2013 in Louisville, KY, where Javier Pérez Sandoval persued his graduate studies in jazz composition with big band arranging legend John La Barbera.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
