About the Album

Originally from Colombia, New York-based pianist/composer Gabriel Guerrero fearlessly navigates the breadth of modern music, imbuing his performances with rhythmic and harmonic influences from South America to the avant-garde and the rich expanses of jazz. Guerrero exalts his music with a high understanding of its roots, bringing his aesthetic and an emotional heft to each phrase. With the inspired band of Seth Trachy on sax, bassist Will Slater, and drummer Felix Lecaros, Quantum distills the power of their collective improvisations through Guerrero's intriguing compositions, spreading light through the cascade of unique moments. “...a masterful musical intellect...gorgeous melodic ideas that seemingly appear out of nowhere to captivate the heart and mind of the listener...resplendent in melody and harmony, and rich in the rhythm of his mystical Colombian roots." – LATIN JAZZ NETWORK
