Yosvany Terry: Growth from Tradition
AAJ: I remember the Jazz Cubano series well! What's up next for Yosvany Terry?
YT: Well, I am planning a tour to promote the album. We are planning to play in Vermont and on the West Coast. We will be doing some different things.
AAJ: What, or who were you listening to, just prior to coming here this evening?
YT: Earlier today I was listening to Miles with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and Ron Carter. But it varies from day to day. Yesterday I was listening to Coleman Hawkins and Los Munequitos de Matanzas. My brother and I also listen to the popular groups in Cuba like Los Van Van and Irakere. My brother was recently in West Africa and he brought back a whole lot of music.
AAJ: Yosvany, it has been a pleasure speaking with you. Good luck with your new recording. I will see you at the CD Release party!
