Oye como va- Luis Marín Quartet #Ventana al mar

Luis Marín, Pedro Pérez, Kachiro Thomson & Pablo Rivera 

These productions showcase Luis Marín as a multi-talented well-rounded musician: pianist, composer, and arranger. His innovative proposals are a perfect mix of the jazz traditions with the Afro-Caribbean language.

Luis Marin's debut album in the jazz genre was received by the critics as one of the most important jazz albums in the local scene. On this album, Marin presents an anthology songbook of classic bolero compositions of the 50’s relevant to the repertoire of Puerto Rican singer Gilberto Monroig, being one of the first recordings in the genre where the Puerto Rican Songbook is addressed in the emerging movement Jazz decade of the 90's. 

This live recorded musical project captures fleeting moments of improvisation and interpretation of Puerto Rican’s songbook classics as well as jazz standards in a quartet format. Accompanied by Pedro Perez on bass, Pablo Rivera on drums and percussionist Paoli Mejías.

 

His latest release "The One" showcases his talent on a magical trip of diverse musical influences, exciting and introspective rhythms and heartfelt melodic and harmonic messages from the heart.
