As a follow up to our successful 2019 production of the CD El pañuelo de Pepa, we have launched a new recording project of the music of Sylvia Rexach. Rexach was a master composer of heartfelt boleros. Her style was a part of the filin (feeling) movement in Caribbean song, a movement that was influenced by jazz singers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Nat King Cole. We teamed up once again with renowned Cuban pianist Pepe Rivero to do the arrangements and to record the songs with his Latin jazz trio. The trio includes two prominent Cuban musicians: Reinier Elizarde on bass and Michael Olivera on drums. Our vocalist is the fabulous ibicenca singer Ángela Cervantes. The recording features two very special guests: Puerto Rican Miguel Zenón on alto sax and Cuban tenor saxophonist Ariel Bringuez. We are now taking pre-orders for the CD which will be released in October 2021. To pre-order your copies go to our SHOP page.
