Pianist and composer, Elio Villafranca's new album, Cinque is the product of an earnest and careful execution of creativity. This album seamlessly educates and entertains, and in the same breath invites the listener to introspect.

Join me as I talk with the Cuban pianist about Cinque, Cuba, Childish Gambino, and other carefully related topics.

Cinque features Elio Villafranca on piano, Vincent Herring on alto & soprano sax, flute, Greg Tardy on tenor sax, clarinet, Todd Marcus on bass clarinet, Freddie Hendrix on trumpet, Steve Turre on trombone, bass trombone, conch shells, Ricky Rodriguez on acoustic bass, Lewis Nash on drums, Arturo Stable on bata drums, congas, palo drums or atabales, Miguel Valdes on bata drums, congas, bombo, Jonathan Troncoso on palo drums or atabales, valsié, barril drum, Nelson Mateo Gonzales on barril, palo drums or atabales, Alexander Lasalle on vocals, Alexander Waterman oncello, Wynton Marsalis on trumpet, Leyla McCalla on vocals, The Creole Jazz Serenaders with Don Vappie on banjo.
