"Caminante no hay camino, se hace camino al andar" Antoino Machado

"I love the freedom of jazz and the joy of Cuban rhythms. I wanted to write music that reflects this and makes the best of each musician’s unique style: Cuban-born pianist Yoël Diaz, alto saxophonist Erik Hove, and drummer Yvon Plouffe. Guest percussionist, Cuban-born Orlando Lavielle on congas, joins us on the album which was cut in a single session at Studio Karisma, Montreal. My idea - to have a sound as close to ‘live’ as possible with the sort of playing which is spontaneous yet structured." Alex Bellegarde
