Charlie Sepúlveda is a heralded trumpeter, composer, bandleader, professor, and Grammy Winner. He leads The Turnaround Band for his latest release This is Latin Jazz, an explosive, session including many special guests. Lead lines rotate band members through the spotlight with a vibrant glimmer that left us energized. Crisp brass accents from Steve Turre (tb), Randy Brecker (t), Miguel Zenon (a-sax) and of course Sepúlveda, make this one sizzle. There are lots of racy, syncopated beats featuring drummer Francisco Alcalá and conguero Nicholas Cozaboom, underscoring the essential Afro-Cuban beat!
