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.
