Muze PNote Formed in the early 1990s by vibraphonist Dave Samuels, the Caribbean Jazz Project began as a trio featuring percussionist Andy Narell and saxphonist Paquito d'Rivera. In the years since its inception, however, the Project has grown into a big band of nearly 20. The force of the large ensemble, particularly the horns, can be heard on AFRO BOP ALLIANCE. As the title suggests, the music focuses on Afro-Cuban jazz, but there's plenty of mainland Latin influence and North American traditional jazz in the mix (as evidenced by the covers of Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane). Hard-grooving arrangements and stellar playing make AFRO BOP ALLIANCE an exhilarating ride.

Producer: Dave Samuels

Engineer: Bob Dawson; Bob Dawson

Professional Reviews

Global Rhythm (Publication)
- "[With] a suave interpretation of Coltrane's 'Naima,' a majestic take on Oliver Nelson's archetypal 'Stolen Moments,' a sweeping read of Monk's 'Bemsha Sing,' and a sparkling version of the Gillespie-Pozo chestnut 'Soul Sauce'..."
