Cross cultural jazz guitar Juan Carlos Quintero – Caminando

Cross cultural jazz guitar Juan Carlos Quintero – CAMINANDO:  I don’t often go for “re-issues”, but Juan makes the listen so pleasant on his cross cultural jazz guitar album that it’s an absolute must… though I didn’t see any LIVE videos, here’s a preview of the release…

If you SUBSCRIBE to Juan’s Moondo Music channel on YouTube, you can check out several of his other albums, too.

When “lively” is what you’re looking for, you’ll find the 4:48 “Caribbean Sun Dance” very much to your liking, guaranteed… swirling guitar, piano full of life and some superb crowd sounds woven in make this just the kind of tune that DJ’s worldwide will be plugging into their playlists on a regular basis!

It’s difficult to express the joy I felt as I listened to “Libre” (Free)… this is just the kind of tune we need to pipe into our schools to help our children understand that life is about the LIVING… truly one of the best Latin-based songs I have listened to (yet) in 2021.

The driving drums on the intro to “Little Indians” will give you visions of lush Latin nightclubs, and have you up and dancing around the room… be sure to listen to this tune with your headphones on!

After listening through the album the second time, it was clear that my choice for personal favorite of the ten tantalizing tunes offered up is the title track, “Caminando” (Walking)… there’s a real snap & crackle in the interchange between Juan’s guitar and the percussion that is totally enjoyable.

I give Juan and all his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this highly enjoyable album.  Get more information on Juan’s page for the release.                                  Rotcod Zzaj
