Picking up the baton of fusion greats like Weather Report, Corea´s Electric Band, Herbie Hancock, Sixum or Zawinul Syndicate, and directly flavored by the Jazz of Irakere, Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis, Hermeto Pascoal and Paco de Lucía, this projects pursues the ambitious goal of taking fusion to a new place, where a communion between flamenco, funk and afrocuban folklore is the key ingredient of a complex and magical recipe.
Its quite rare to see a percussionist assuming the leading roll and the composers seat of a jazz band.. Jorge Pérez, with both american and spanish citizenships, presents a fascinating new mix where Flamenco, Latin Jazz, Funk and contemporary fusion go by hand with outstanding knowledge of each of their roots. For this quest he has put together an exceptional band with the best of the new generation of international jazz players located in Spain. Some have already said this might be the band that the fusion scene in Europe was waiting for.
