Misty – Andy Gonzalez – Entre Colegas

Published

on

“Misty” is the fourth track on Andy Gonzalez’s album Entre Colegas, the first recording to bear Andy’s name as a leader. The repertoire offers the listener an intimate look at Andy’s creative process and reflects his eclectic taste in music. Unlike the vast majority of his recordings, which feature brass and horn ensembles, the music focuses on guitars, strings and Latin jazz with folkloric elements. It is what Andy imagines as, “Django Reinhardt goes to Cuba and Puerto Rico.”

“There was a very positive vibe in the studio. The proof is in the music. Listen and enjoy.” – Andy Gonzalez

Grant Richards’ Live Performance of “Ballyhoo”

Published

on

Grant Richards

Grant Richards – a pianist deeply immersed in bebop and the blues – leads his music in a bold
and emergent new direction with Ballyhoo, an Afro-Cuban celebration of a previously unspoken
dream, finally realized in a tangible elation of musicianship, culture, and unbridled wonder.
Richards, like the great jazz composers throughout history, wrote the music on Ballyhoo not for
generic instruments, but for the specific and unique musical personalities of the musicians in his
ensemble.

Ballyhoo is the title track from my new album, my first excursion into Latin jazz, combining
many elements that get me out of my comfort zone like intricate grooves, odd keys, and the
necessity for precise execution,” Richards shares. “The title implies an excited commotion and
with the crisp performance by my bandmates Damian Erskine, Reinhardt Melz, and Carmelo
Torres
, I think this track embodies the exuberance and playfulness I intended for the project as a
whole.”
