Meet SEGUIDA: The Latin-Rock explosion began, when Santana first burst onto the music scene in the late sixties and early Seventies. While Santana was becoming popular on the West Coast, a young group of Hispanic musicians from the Bronx in New York City wanted to build upon the Caribbean roots of Afro/Cuban jazz, Rhythm and Blues, and New York City salsa.
The group was called Seguida. Seguida's music is a unique mix of funk, hip hop, rock, R&B, salsa and jazz.
Jazz is a creative explosion of individual freedom and communication.
I was first exposed to jazz when I was a kid. My father had a music store.
The best live performance I ever attended was Kenny Garrett in Harlem, New York.
The first jazz record I bought was Saxophone Colossus by Sonny Rollins.
My advice to new listeners is keep listening!
