Mark Weinstein: Cuban Roots
AAJ: What's next for Mark Weinstein?
MW: I recorded a Brazilian album with Romero Lubambo who also recorded Jazz World Trios and with Nilson Matta and Paulo Braga who played on my Brazilian album of music by Hermeto Pascoal, Tudo de Bom. The album has two additional percussionists, Guilerhme Franko and Jorge Silva. We play a wide range of Brazilian forms including the choro. It is due out in early spring, 2006. I also have three hours of music I recorded in Berlin with African musicians, Jean-Paul and Omar Sosa that I'm trying to sculpt into an album. Plus a straight ahead Latin jazz project I hope to record with Mark Levine this spring and then for something completely different...
AAJ: From you I expect nothing less! Before we close, congratulations!. I understand, Algo Más made Jazziz magazine's "Critics Picks of the Year" and "Latin Jazz Network" singled out Algo Mas as one of best recordings of 2005. What better way to end our conversation?
