Album Notes
Afro-Peruvian jazz secrets recounts the story of the Afro-Peruvian Sextet's first two albums. This performance was captured "live" at Festival Miami. The Afro-Peruvian Sextet received a standing ovation and featured two different guests on this historic evening. The band begins with a hair raising rendition of "Summertime" to the delight of an exuberant crowd. Each musician combines their native Afro-Peruvian sensibilities with advanced jazz harmonic concepts. The rhythm used is the sultry "landó." The band then roars into their 2010 "Pucusana," the title track of an album that received 12 Latin Jazz Corner awards. Laura Andrea Leguía's beautiful valse/landó called "Puerto Pimentel" provides a beautiful soundscape which is followed by the traditional Peruvian folk song "Toro Mata," performed in the jazz context to grandiose applause. The set closes with "Piso 19" and "Mono de Nazca" both composed by Gabriel Alegría.
