One of the most refreshingly innovative groups in Latin jazz today, the Caribbean Jazz Project - co-led by Dave Samuels and Dave Valentin - never fails to surprise and delight listeners with their inspired melding of jazz and Latin music. Whether putting a fresh, Latin spin on jazz standards (such as playing Oliver Nelson's "Stolen Moments" as a cha cha in 7/4-time, or recasting Thelonious Monk's "Bemsha Swing" as a mambo!), or bringing their compelling original compositions to life with distinctive artistry and virtuosity (such as Valentin's groovin' song "See You In A Minute", or Samuels' Puerto Rico spiced bomba "The Path", the Caribbean Jazz Project has created a signature sound unlike any other group in Latin jazz. Re-joining the Caribbean Jazz Project in this special gathering are pianist Dario Eskenazi (a member of the original group) and special guest and CJP alumnus Paquito D'Rivera, making The Gathering a recording event that's not to be missed!
