Album Notes
Survival Groove brings together musicians from jazz and Latin music, finding synergy in a common groove. The group features veteran jazz musician, Gene Tucci (guitar), who comes from years of experience in the jazz, rock and R&B worlds; Roberto Medina (bongo,timbal and background vocals) and Sylvia Sherman (bass), who have played in the Latin music scene, co-directing the popular contemporary son ensemble, La Familia Son; Dan Schulman (trombone), well versed in both jazz and Latin music; and Norm Downing (congas and lead vocals), who has played percussion and sung for over 30 years in numerous Bay Area groups.

Survival Groove plays jazzy renditions of Cuban son and original music featuring funky grooves, and jazz and R&B music with Latin rhythms. With ample talent for improvisation, their performances are unique and pleasing for both listening and dancing. Survival Groove brings audiences East Bay funk with salsa, jazz y sabor!

Straight from the Heart is Survival Groove's debut album featuring original music that speaks to universal and contemporary themes. Enjoy!
