Album Notes
Recorded in high definition and available exclusively in Blu-ray format in 5.1 surround sound.

Master percussionist Paoli Mejias belongs to a generation of artists who are redefining puertoricanness in musical terms with their artistry. Mixing diverse Afro-Caribbean styles with global rhythms, based upon traditional/popular puertorican music, bomba, plena, aguinaldo, and holding it all together within the realm of modern jazz, Paoli is at the forefront of creation of an exciting, recognizable sound.

While watching this concert, "Paoli Mejias de Jazzambia a Mi Tambor" three things come to mind.

1. The high level of musicianship of the performers, Paoli's band and special guests being featured.
2. The high quality, technically speaking, of this superb high definition audio visual creation.
3. The remarkable fact that this is an independent production.

This shouldn't come as a surprise, as it's been the case with the three CDs previously released by Paoli Mejias. Truly a feast for the senses, "Paoli Mejias de Jazzambia a Mi Tambor" doesn't dissapoint at all, on the contrary, it does live up to the expectations of an increasingly demanding legion of discerning viewers/listeners.

Paoli's followers, and I count myself in, couldn't be more delighted with this long-awaited live video recording.
Full Review:

Performing for more than 25 years, Grammy nominee Paoli Mejías has distinguished himself as a young master percussionist and is ranked among the best in both salsa and Latin jazz. Paoli is now at the vanguard of Latin jazz as leader of his own Quintet, having produced this live performance released on Blu-ray "DE JAZZAMBIA A MI TAMBOR EL CONCIERTO" (2011) and three successful CDs as band leader: "JAZZAMBIA"(2008), “Transcend” (2006) and “Mi Tambor” (2004) which received a Latin Grammy Award nomination for Best Latin Jazz Album. As a bandleader Paoli fuses straight-ahead jazz with African, Mediterranean & Caribbean folkloric rhythms to create a new dimension of Latin jazz that is global, energetic, and modern.

“PAOLI MEJIAS DE JAZZAMBIA A MI TAMBOR EL CONCIERTO” is a concert of Paoli Mejias performing with the best musicians in Puerto Rico many songs from his 3 CDs, and new songs he has written. This live recording is a captivating musical journey of Paoli’s evolution as musician, bandleader, and composer. Paoli documents a historical moment in Latin jazz, celebrating the diversity of his Puerto Rican heritage and showcasing the rich talent of the new generation of musicians in Puerto Rico.
