A Story to Be Told

by Sophia Nelson

This album is a long journey from my childhood to this day. Each track corresponds to a certain period in my life, a country, a culture that has influenced and enriched me musically. It is a continuity of my previous albums. The affirmation of my love for Jazz and Rumba, a dream to infuse the two. It is a creative and cultural melting pot of ideas. A marriage of Afro-Cuban rhythms and instruments mixed with improvising techniques of Jazz music. The combination shows the exchange is mutual rather than one simply influencing the other. A fusion which is not, unavoidable but desirable. It can only grow from here!!! Ella Fitzgerald, Carmen Mcrae, Miriam Makeba, Cole Porter, Dizzy Gillespie, Tito Puentes, Tata Guines, John Coltrane and Stevie Wonder can all be appreciated on this album

Album Notes
This is an album for all occasions and moods. This is an amazing collection of Jazz and international classics from all corners of the world. Beautifully arranged and accompanied by a lovely blend of musical instruments and percussions. Indeed it is a story to be told, delivered by a strong soulful voice; Sophia infuses her own sound and influences. Each track takes you on a journey of musical delight. Flavours of Latin beats, Cuban colours, Highlife highs and Deep South Soul.
