Third record release of composer and guitarist, Anthony Ocaña. This solo work includes nine pieces, seven of which are original compositions and two are Ocaña’s adaptations from songs by The Beatles. The bonus track, also authored by Ocaña, is the only piece with percussionist and special guest, Pablo Peña, also known as Pablito Drum.

This is a production where the six string instrument becomes orchestra, and this whole of instruments, guitar. Each composition has a life and personality of its own, reflecting the influences on the artist, Caribbean folklore, as well as classical music and jazz. It is an album where –in essence- all of the important elements of the guitar converge and where composition meets improvisation. As stated by Ocaña, “it is a homage to the instrument of greatest weight in my work.”

Ocaña does not forget to reserve a space to honor those artists who have impacted his creativity: from Lennon-McCartney, “Yesterday” and “Blackbird”, and dedicated to Anouar Brahem is “Improviso 2”.

“Solo” may be acquired at ITUNES and CDBABY, among others.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
