ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Sol Boricua” is Cafêzz’ second album and it’s music is aimed to listeners that enjoy an ample palette of sounds, such as the world jazz genre has to offer. Although it’s proposal is diverse from their previous release, Music & Friends, it truly captures the group’s essence and distictive sound.

The album includes 12 new compositions in an eclectic mix of styles intended to please a wide audience. “Sol Boricua” is a tropical mix of “bomba” and “guaracha jíbara”, and features our traditional “barril de bomba” which is a barrel like drum. Other caribbean-blended styles are presented like “El Cafetal” (“aguinaldo”/funk), “Cortadito” (“guajira”/blues) and “Mujer de la Alborada” (“danza puertorriqueña”). “Te Invito un Café” and “Café no Ceu” borrow from Brazil’s rich genres such as “samba canção”, “partido alto” and “samba”. As a bonus, it features a “batucada” with its authentic instruments and rhythms. Crossing the border into Perú, “Desde mi Balcón” absorbs elements of the classy “vals peruano” and combines it with quasi-classical melodies. “Antes que Salga la Luna” and “Coffee Lovers” combine classical, new age and even progressive rock matter in a daring attempt to venture into more open and contrasting atmospheres. The last 3 pieces are based in swing, rock, blues & funk styles. “Barista’s Swing” is a contemporary jazz swing performed respectful to the traditional form, “Just 4 Funk” is a bluesy/funky cool groove tune, and “Mayi” a rock fusion incursion that culminates in a progressive “mano a mano” between organ, guitar and drums

12 of the finest local musicians are featured in the recording: Jorge Laboy - guitar, Pedro Guzmán - “cuatro puertorriqueño”, Norberto “Tiko” Ortíz - tenor saxophone, José Roberto Jiménez - flute and tenor saxophone, Waldemar Reyes - ethnic percussion, Christian Galíndez - latin percussion and Héctor Matos - drum set. Three up and coming, young musicians also participated: Joel Torres - guitar, Brian Muñoz - guitar and Edgardo Sierra Jr. - alto saxophone. Finishing up the roster are project leaders Carmen Noemí - piano and keboards, and Edgardo “Egui” Sierra - electric bass.
