Trombón con Sazón

by The Latin Jazz Coalition & Demetrios Kastaris

"A unique new and exciting sound in Latin jazz. The musical level is what I would expect from Tito Puente, Oscar D' Leon or Willie Rosario. One of the best new recordings that I've heard so far this year that combines traditional Latin music, Latin jazz, Brazilian music and Funk. An outstanding effort." Max Salazar, Senior Editor, Latin Beat Magazine "This recording is definitely Grammy Award material." Chico Alvarez, WBAI in New York City on air Host and recording artist “Consistency is what makes a band out of a group of very talented musicians, as evidenced here not only by the tight ensembles, but the sensitive and subtle interplay behind the soloists. ...I heartily recommend this recording, not only for the brilliant and diverse soloists, but the well thought-out over-all pacing of the varied rhythms and ensemble work, as well as the inventive arrangements of interesting and original compositions.” Bill Spilka, The International Trombone Association Journal , Audio/ Video Review

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
" Trombón con Sazón is a great title for a recording. It's been available for some time, but nobody ever used it. And it is a good thing that Demetrios Kastaris thought of it, because his music really gives it a meaning. This album should please lovers of Latin Jazz and Salsa alike. Although the trombone, played by Kastaris, is the king here, the band has a powerful brass section that includes Ray Vega and Steve Gluzband (trumpets), Pete McGuiness (trombone), and Connie Grossman (flute). Some of the special guests in some cuts are Dave Valentin (flute), Claudio Roditi (trumpet), Mitch Frohman (tenor sax, flute), Kimson Plaut and Edy Martínez (piano), and others. This combination is capable of generating explosive results... Believe or not, this band was created in 1986. It is not until now that we have the pleasure to enjoy it. Demetrios Kastaris had to wait a long time, and, like an old vintage wine, his music has that special flavor. I'm sure that we'll be hearing from this band again." Eric Gonzalez, Oasis Salsero

Trombón con Sazón was placed in various top spots the New York City, Miami, and San Francisco Top 20 Hit Parade Poll in Latin Beat Magazine for 16 straight months beginning in August of the year 2000.

Bob Bernotas

Trombon con Sazon (Trombone with Spice)
From the very first bar of his solo, Kastaris, as he does throughout this recording, exhibits a full, clear tone in all registers, a clean attack, and an ease improvising within the Afro-Cuban idiom.... Kastaris' Latin-Jazz Coalition is not simply a framework for solo blowing - although there is plenty of that on this disc. Rather, this is a well practiced, cohesive ensemble, a musical collective that is greater than the sum of its formidable parts.... Demetrios Kastaris and the Latin-Jazz Coalition embody the fusion of jazz and Latin musics at its most creative and exhilarating. - Bob Bernotas, The Online Trombone Journal
