Album Notes
With Filosofía Caribeña Vol.2, we continue to honor the ancestors and pay homage to the creators, pioneers and innovators of Jazz and Caribbean musical forms, particularly those of Afro-Latino origins. The gifts they left us are endless, bountiful and priceless. We hope that our gratitude translates through these compositions, lyrics, rhythms, solos and ensemble interpretations. Where Filosofía Caribeña Vol.1 is mostly instrumental, Vol.2 features much more sung and spoken word. Whether in Spanish, Yoruba/Lucumí, Bríkamo, Ki-Kongo, Bozál, Kreyol, or Arará, African-rooted Caribbean philosophy is at the core of all the pieces presented here. And jazz philosophy is also Caribbean philosophy thanks to its New Orleans roots. It is a working class worldview that documents our history in our own words and through our own musical inventions, honoring our elders whether they are here or in the next realm. It is a perspective of mutual respect for life, unity, community, human rights, justice, liberty, and the planet with an emphasis on passing these precious inherited traditions on to future generations so that they might know of the great love that gave birth to these forms of expression and recognize their power, beauty, and role in self-identification. Without diminishing the importance of every Caribbean island and nation, this project gives particular tribute to the Greater Antilles, the larger islands that form the heart of the heart of the Americas, if you will. Cuba, Puerto Rico, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic share common colonial histories and are all fêted in Filosofía 2.

I believe we've achieved a thought-provoking, conscientious and playful CD that documents a critical time in our careers and lives. curious as to what YOU think. Thank you for supporting creative music.

John Santos
