An extraordinary evening of jazz with the Dominican Jazz Project
The Dominican Jazz Project began when Dominican born jazz artist, Guillo Carias, invited American jazz pianist, Stephen Anderson, to perform with him and local players for the 2014 Jazzomania Jazz Festival in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, was hosted by Tony Dominguez and Carlos Francisco Elías. The concert and associated clinic went beautifully; drummer Guy Frómeta invited Anderson to return to Santo Domingo to perform with him in his group for the Casa de Teatro Jazz Festival a few months later. It was there that Anderson met Sandy Gabriel, tenor saxophonist. Their collective friendship grew further with that experience, and following the festival, agreed to record together.
