Chris Washburne and the SYOTOS Band push the genre of Latin Jazz into uncharted waters with a postmodern mix that embraces dissonance, weaving contemporary uptempo beats with a driving sound, or as the New York Times states “SYOTOS plays with fire with erudition!" Syotos was founded 20 years ago and has become what TimeOUT New York calls a “Latin Jazz institution." They have held the longest running Latin jazz gig in the City's history, playing every week for 19 years. They are one of the busiest and most in demand Latin jazz groups in New York. Some of the band's members are alumni from the Tito Puente and Eddie Palmieri bands and they continue in those leader's footsteps, pushing the genre into the 21st century. Their release “Paradise In Trouble" on Jazzheads Records was nominated as the best Latin jazz records of 2004.
