Raices Jazz Orchestra

Raices Jazz Orchestra

Classic big band energy and Latin jazz flair come together in grand fashion on this vibrant collection from Peruvian American percussionist Succar and Venezuelan American saxophonist Gil. After the animated opener “Raices Jam” sets the tone, the group relentlessly delivers a bombastic sound too enormous for any mere supper club set. Under the bandleaders’ guidance, the 1965 Herbie Hancock standard “Eye of the Hurricane” explodes in this salsa-adjacent adaptation. A Succar original, “Pa’ Oyichan” unfolds with luxury and leisure, with soloing worth applauding even if just in the comfort of one’s own home.
