With the open and spontaneous aesthetic of New York City's jazz scene combined with inspiration drawn from traditional folkloric music of the Americas, Grupo Los Santos continues to explore their unique collective sound on their third release, Clave Heart. Here, the quartet of saxophonist Paul Carlon, guitarist Peter Smith, bassist David Ambrosio, and drummer William “Beaver" Bausch, adds batá drums, Afro-Cuban chants, and guests, flute virtuoso Kaori Fujii and long-time collaborator, vocalist and body-percussionist Max Pollak, to create a wide spectrum of sound and texture throughout this dynamic set of original compositions.

Their second CD, Lo Que Somos Lo Que Sea (What We Are What Will Be – Deep Tone 2008) continued the tradition from their first, Noches en El Taller (Nights at the Workshop)–high energy originals in guaguancó, funk, and descarga complementing further explorations in samba, choro and rumba.  It was chosen as a “Best of” for 2008 by All About Jazz in the latin jazz category, and made Tom Hull’s Village Voice Jazz Consumer Guide.
