ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The description of what is jazz according to music scholars has its beginning in the early 20th century and since then it has spawned in a variety of subgenres incorporating an impressive amount of music cultures at the local, national and regional level around the world. What started out to be known as Afro Cuban Jazz interpreted by great “music men” the likes of Mario Bauza, Bebo Valdes, “Cachao”, Tito Puente, Chano Pozo, Perez Prado and others, has today evolved into what is popularly known as Latin Jazz... The evolution has no end in sight however. Newer generations of players, composers and arrangers have come along to not just “keep the flame alive”, but to put forth a fresh offering of ideas that are very much in tune with today’s musical currents.
Jorge Luis Sosa was born in Guantanamo, Oriente, Cuba on December 13th, 1964, Jorge is only seven when he has his first encounter with what would become a lifelong love affair with music and his chosen instrument, the piano. His education began at Elementary School Luis A. Carbo where he was taught music and piano by Luisa Margarita de Quesada and Maria A. Luisa Cabal respectively. At age eleven he wrote his first composition, a Danzonete he entitled “Mi hermoso huerto”. By 1980, he leaves his home town and moves to the city of Camaguey where he enrolls at Escuela Profesional de Artes for mid level piano studies under Professor Vladimir kusmenko. In 1984, he is awarded a scholarship to study music composition at Havana’s Instituto Superior de Arte, where he graduates with honors in 1989.
Eighteen years of music studies including times when he was tutored by some of the most prestigious educators in Cuba, the likes of Carlos Farinas, Felix Guerrero, Gonzalo Romeu and others, had prepared this exceptionally gifted artist to begin a journey that so far, although in its early stages, has quickly placed him at the forefront of those who are “pushing the envelope”, or like they would say back in the days, “saying something”. Since his arrival in the United States in 1993 he has been the musical director and pianist for Cuban singing sensation Willie Chirino, travelled the world as keyboards player for international super star “Chayanne”, wrote many popular compositions and played piano with The Latin Jazz Crew, as well as numerous other performances with artists such as Celia Cruz, Luis Enrique, Cachao and many more.
With this release, the Latin Grammy nominated producer (2010), gifted composer, astute arranger and incredible pianist, presents us with his first solo project, “Moodswings”. To listen to these compositions is to alternately swing from Jazz to Rap from Conga to a soothing Bolero and then back to an exuberant Nengon not to mention the captivating rhythm and vocals of an Afro Cuban folk song. Jorge does it with a brilliant display of musicianship evoking memories of Chano’s “Manteca” or Perez Prado’s “Rock Mambo”.
Jorge Luis, no doubt, has earned a place among the great ones, the unforgetables, “La Crème de la Crème”.
