I ran across an album with a face I recognized from long ago. It’s not like this artist is difficult to find, however I think this is his first project as the leader of this recording project. His name is Carlos Henriquez and he is the bass player. His latest project The Bronx Pyramid is a beautiful collection of latin and jazz compositions with incredible performances by well known artist like Rubén Blades.
I encourage folks to look up, listen and download/buy his album.
As the title suggest I feel late to the party currently in my soul. These days I feel like I discover a fantastic new artist every where I look. The Brazilian singer Luciana Souza has just invaded my mind and I am looking forward to having her occupy space there for some time to come. Chamber music comes in all forms and this performance is a great example of communication and space in music.
