The John Santos Quartet
The John Santos Quartet
The John Santos Quartet validates and manifests the fact that jazz was born in a Caribbean environment (New Orleans) and organically draws from the rich cultural expressions of the region. The JS Quartet gloriously exemplifies the wide world of creativity that is a vital and natural extension of traditional rhythms and forms throughout the Americas. Original arrangements and compositions, a high degree of improvisation, and a broad repertoire from the jazz and Latin American canons are the group's trademarks. The John Santos Quartet is at once unique, exciting and inspiring for all ages.

Saul Sierra - bass
