Jazz Estate welcomes Roy McGrath to the stage. Remembranzas mixes Puerto Rican folcloric percussion genres such as Bomba and Plena with elements of contemporary jazz and improvisation.
For Puerto Rico-born tenor saxophonist and composer Roy McGrath, the past is present in the form of these memories. This music honors that past, yet also provides a signpost for the future. The eight compositions that make up this album were written and arranged for this particular band of musicians, and they represent a very specific and personal truth that fully came into existence in the recording studio.
