Mark Weinstein's New CD Release O Nosso Amor
on Jazzheads Records Available May 9th, 2006

“Weinstein, of course, is a jazzman, and a legend at that, particularly in the Afro-Latin/Afro-Cuban jazz sphere"--Shifra Tanzt

Mark Weinstein offers to the world his spectacularly beautiful new recording O Nosso Amor, a project that gloriously combines the superb musicianship and compositional talent of this brilliant jazz innovator. O Nosso Amor (the follow up to the critically acclaimed Algo Mas) displays the magic of Mark Weinstein with an all star line up of Romero Lubambo on guitar, Nilson Matta on acoustic bass, Paulo Braga on drums, and Guilherme Franco and Jorge Silva on percussion. O Nosso Amor promises to be one of the top Latin jazz releases of 2006. This is an extraordinary example of Weinstein's interpretation of his Afro-Latin/Afro-Cuban style.

Mark Weinstein is a jazz innovator who plays world-based jazz and postbop with world-class 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 with Mark on trombone and Chick Corea on piano in an epic statement 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. O Nosso Amor will be released by JazzheadsRecords on May 9th, 2006 in the U.S.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
