Nowadays few flutists and musicians can match the creative talent of Mark Weinstein. This man is a musical phenomenon"--Maximillien De Lafayette, World News Agency
Mark Weinstein plays world-based jazz and post-bebop, with musicians rooted in Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, African, Jewish and Indian traditions. A Latin jazz innovator, Mark was among the first jazz musicians to record with traditional Cuban rhythm sections. His signature album, Cuban Roots, released in 1967, is a classic recording--with Mark on trombone and Chick Corea on piano--that transformed Latin jazz. His recent recordings include such notables as Cuban pianist Omar Sosa, Brazilian guitarist Romero Lubambo, percussionists Francisco Aguabella, Cyro Baptista and Pedrito Martinez, bassists Santi Debriano, Nilson Mata and Mike Richmond as well as guitarists Jean Paul Bourelly, Vic Juris, Brad Shepik and Ed Cherry and drummers Cindy Blackman, Paulo Braga and Cecil Brooks III.
