Oscar Perez's latest CD entitled Nuevo Comienzo employs an instrumental septet of NewYork artists. The sound draws from Latin and jazz music to exploreinnovative arrangements. It features guest artists Wycliffe Gordon(trombone) and Peter Bernstein (guitar). Along with many performances in andaround the east coast, this group recently spent a month touring throughoutRussia including Moscow and concert halls in Siberia. Since the release ofthe CD, the feedback has been very positive. As Dr. Ana Isabel Ordonez ofJazzReview.com noted, ³Prolific pianist and composer Oscar Perez delivers anamazing bouquet of Latin jazz compositions. Perez blends his rhythmic Cubanroots and American jazz with high skill.
