Grupo Los Santos

Lo Que Somos Lo Que Sea ***
CD (Deep Tone/Grupo Los Santos 38623 (OS6)), Released 2007;
Editor's Pick:
"Cuban music is about style and rhythm, and Grupo Los Santos displays both of these qualities in abundance... The musicians focus less on traditional instrumentnation and arrangements... and instead push their musical skills on percussion [sic], saxophone, bass, and guitars to build a contemporary sound while respecting the music's roots. Call it jazz or call it world fusion, Grupo Los Santos is adept at whatever it could be." - Paula E. Kirman, Global Rhythm
"Lo Que Somos Lo Que Sea is an intoxicating blend of Brazilian rhythms and styles and jazz sensibilities... The music is inspired and fiery... For fans of Brazilian music, Lo Que Somos Lo Que Sea is a no-brainer. Go out and get it and you won’t be disappointed. The material is interesting and engaging. The band plays with authenticity and taste." - Dave Miele, JazzImprov NY
"What is remarkable about this record is that at no point does the listener feel as if a band member is soloing. The group plays so fluidly together that each instrument is merely a layer adding to the overall sound... Lo Que Somos Lo Que Sea is a solid, interesting album from a very capable band that is deserving of more recognition." - David Miller, All About Jazz (DR, 2012-10-25)
