“Nueva Vision – Latin Jazz & Soul From The Cuban Label Egrem/Areito” To Be Released in May

Following on from the success of such exotic compilations as their Paz e Futebol tribute to one of their biggest influences, Brazilian music, and the German Jazz samplers, Forum West Focus Jazz – The Wewerka Archive 1966-1969 and Romanian Jazz  – JAZZANOVA now bring you another very special collection: this time the subject is Cuban Jazz.

This 18 track strong compilation takes in some of the finest in Cuban music from the last century and includes great names from the Cuban scene such as CHUCHO VALDES, OMARA PORTUONDO and BOBBY CARCASSES to name but a few. The JAZZANOVA crew have been assisted on the track selection for this compilation by their long time musical friend ERIK OTT.

JAZZANOVA’s Nueva Vision compilation again shows what an open-minded taste in music they have.

And it is this first class taste in music that makes them one of the best A+R teams in the world and has led to so much great music being discovered, played out in clubs and ultimately released on their label Sonar Kollektiv. This selection sees JAZZANOVA going even further in the direction of world music – an under explored path that they bring to today’s ears.
