From Philadelphia, Celestino Sanchez and his 11-piece ensemble CSAN II present JAZZ-SALSA, a compilation of eight songs that was released July 7, 2020. In this album you’ll find five Salsa tracks and three instrument Latin Jazz numbers.
JAZZ-SALSA includes the collaboration of respected musicians in the Salsa scene like Jimmy Bosch (hear his solo in the introductory song entitled “Sueño Imposible”) and percussionist Pablo “Chino” Nuñez. The songs “Rebelde” and “What You Won’t Do for Love” are new arrangements of well-known songs in the voice of singer and Philadelphia native Lia Montalvo (Other than the lyrics, “Rebelde” sounds like a whole new song with this arrangement!)
JAZZ-SALSA is available on most digital platforms. You can also listen to samples and purchase the songs directly from CSAN-II’s webpage. Some of the songs have also been added to the VidaSalsera.com playlist on Spotify, which you can access from the right margin (or at the bottom) of this page.
