"Rhythms of the Latin America and the Caribbean were next to jazz from the very beginning. Jazz, in turn, throughout its turbulent history exerted the "counter" effect on its many constituents. And such "cross-pollination" inevitably led to a huge number of original melodies. Composed and performed by jazz musicians, they are rooted in idioms and rhythms that musicians in their professional jargon call "Latinos". A stunning mix of common standards and unique improvisation, note recording and emotional outbursts! What active, creative people love jazz – it is a conscious feeling of harmonious freedom!
The wonderful and creative team of Cherkasy Jazz Quintet by Sergey Krasheninnikov addresses some well- (and not) known tunes of "Latinos jazz" and plays them in their usual hard-bop manner..." Arthur Oganesyan (information from the official press release)
