RELEASE DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED!
Kali Rodriguez-Peña – “MELANGE“
“Conceptually, this album has been influenced by many musicians. Each song draws inspiration from many sources. One of the earliest influences for this album comes from Chucho Valdes, Arturo Sandoval, Paquito D’Rivera, Emilian Salvador, Wayne Shorter, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, and Mario Bauza who were some of my greatest heroes growing up. But it was also influenced by musicians like David Sanchez, Miguel Zenon, Arturo O’Farrill (who as a mentor has pushed me to write more and more, and some of the songs were directly inspired by him. Ambrose Akinmusire, Walter Smith III, Juan Formell, Bola de Nieve, J. Dilla and many more.”

Alex “Apolo” Ayala – “BAMBULA”
A powerful, intense and nostalgic fusion of Afro-Puerto Rican “Bomba” rhythms with Jazz. But it’s more than Afro-Puerto Rican Jazz Quartet. It’s a celebration of Afro-Puerto Rican heritage and culture.
