Alberto Miranda

Evoluxion Project attempts to answer inquiries concerning the nature and values in Cuban musical practices combining technology, sound design, and the driving force behind the passion for the music we make and the audience we make it for.

Afro Cuban Electronic Jazz is coming from a wide range of cultural and professional backgrounds

I studied piano with Rosalina Sackstein and composition with Dennis Kam at the University of Miami, FL and founded the university’s student chapter of the Society of Composers, Inc

Alfredo Chacon

Alfredo Chacon is a Cuban American composer, vibraphone player, and percussionist. His music is fresh, happy, positive and full of energy. The melodies play a very important role as much in his compositions as in his solos. Chacon is emerging as one of the most prominent voices of the vibraphone in Latin and Cuban Jazz. He combines a high technical level in his instrument with a great musical,, and harmonic knowledge. His new album ¨Caliente Corner¨ is a wonderful sounding album featuring many Cuban rhythms like Son, Cha cha cha, Mambo, Bolero, Tango congo, Pilon, Danzon y Changui, masterly merged with the harmonies and approach of jazz

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
