Album Notes
Cabanijazz Project - Retrosonic EP

Retrosonic EP is part of a collectible vinyl edition with a New Old-School sound reminiscent of the Mongo Santamaria, Willie Bobo and James Brown era mixed together. On the A-side of the album you'll find,"Canicas En El Cielo" the translation from Spanish means "Marbles in the Sky" (referring to the stars) is a danceable vocal, Latin tropical tune with catchy mambo horn-lines. The playful lyrics are about using a childhood crush memory as an inspiration to find new romance in adulthood.

On the B-side of the album, just imagine James Brown walking in Havana drinking a Cuban mojito cocktail. "Super Mega Ultra Funky" not to exaggerate on the title, is an instrumental that blends the lines between Funk and Latin rhythms.

Cabanijazz Project is not your average salsa, timba, or Latin jazz project, although it has familiar rhythms found in those styles, the unique blend of inverted lower registered horns combined with Rhodes piano and drum set, makes this project a highly enjoyable and for both the listening and dancing audiences.

The dynamic Mexican conga player Javier Cabanillas has come a long way since he started performing in pop-up flea markets in the streets of Tijuana. A few years ago, the Bay Area resident walked the red carpet in Los Angeles and took home a Grammy®️ Award for his work with San Francisco-based Pacific Mambo Orchestra. After that triumphant experience, he decided to concentrate on writing and arranging for his Cabanijazz Project, which has been creating a unique sound called “New Cali-Mambo & Retro Salsa;” Garnishing a Four-Star review on his compositions from Downbeat Magazine.
