With their 3rd release, Sonando continues their unique approach to combining the elements of Afro-Cuban Music with modern jazz. Teaming with Bay Area percussionist/producer Michael Spiro, the octet presents an impressive assortment of interpretations of Cuban and jazz classics by Ignacio Piñero, Arsenio Rodriguez, Wayne Shorter, Horace Silver, and Abdullah Ibrahim, as well as several originals. Sonando draws Latin music and jazz fans together with their fluidly shifting rhythmic explorations, engaging arrangements and soaring improvisations.
