Dave Samuels and the Caribbean Jazz Project

Founded in 1993 by Dave Samuels, The Caribbean Jazz Project has set a new standard in original, improvised music based on the rich musical traditions of the Caribbean, where music from Africa, Europe and the Caribbean Islands first merged and spread its roots. The Caribbean Jazz Project explores these styles meshing them with the spontaneity of Jazz. Considered “thoroughly inventive,” the ensemble has earned numerous Grammy nominations, including a win for Best Latin Jazz Recording for The Gathering.
