CD Review: Ninety Miles

Three young music virtuosos join forces in the Ninety Miles Project, one of the best albums of 2011. Grammy nominated vibraphonist Stefon Harris, New Orleans native, and also Grammy nominated trumpetist Christian Scott and Grammy winner saoxophone master David Sanchez.

Ninety Miles is the distance between the USA and Cuba, two countries with great political differences but with a greater love for good music.

Recorded in Cuba with cuban pianists Rember Duharte and Harold Lopez Nussa, Ninety Miles is also the result of the visit and exploration of Cuban music done by these three master musicians.

What came out of the fusion of these jazz masters is an explosive display of virtuosity and outstanding compositions with an eclectic blend of texture and sound. The contagious african and caribbean rhythms on "Nengueleru", "La Fiesta Va", "Brown Belle Blues", "Congo" y "E'cha", show us new looks and possibilities for the fusion of jazz and latin music.

Musicians: Stefon Harris - vibraphone, David Sanchez - saxophone, Christian Scott - trumpet
