Luis Munoz: The Dead Man

Read "The Dead Man" reviewed by James Nadal


In a thought-provoking concept of intertwining a short story by Uruguayan writer Horacio Quiroga, with a personal near-death experience set to music, drummer/composer Luis Muñoz offers The Dead Man, as a lesson in living life in the present moment, for that is all there is. Muñoz has been quite productive over the past few ...

Luis Muñoz: Luz

Read "Luz" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Lessons in light--or, in Spanish, luz--lush arrangements need not be dense, as proven in Costa Rican-born Californian Luis Muñoz's compositions, orchestrations and arrangements on Luz, his sixth release for the Pelin label following the widely acclaimed Invisible (Pelin, 2010) and Of Soul And Shadow (Pelin, 2008).While his roots go back to Central America, this ...

Muňoz's impressionistic compositions are carefully arranged around a central theme, allowing adequate space to spotlight individual ...

Luis Muñoz: Luz

Read "Luz" reviewed by James Nadal


Akin to wind and rain, music can no longer be confined or characterized by geography; it knows no borders and wanders free.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
