PODCAST: Leo Blanco
Venezuelan pianist and composer Leo Blanco blends his country's sound—a mixture of African and Spanish musical traditions—with years of experience and training as a jazz and classical musician. He is also a Berklee alumnus and faculty member.
"Serendipity" comes from his new CD, Africa Latina, on the Ayva Music label. The disc features a host of talented players, including guitarist Lionel Loueke, Antonio Sanchez, and Donny McCaslin.
If you like what you hear, don't miss Blanco's CD release party at Cafe 939 on November 21.
