Jonathan Widran - The JW Vibe
“….Latin jazz fans who like wild and colorful melodic, harmonic and rhythmic surprises in their ensembles might not need to know the history behind the freewheeling, constantly punch-packing gathering Calle Loiza Jazz Project to fully engage and enjoy….Every moment is pretty much an ear-popping, toe tappin’ highlight”
Dick Metcalf, editor - Contemporary Fusion Reviews
“….Stirring jazz standards….This band is brand new to me, but Calle Loíza Jazz Project plays some of the most stirring jazz standards I’ve heard….I give the Calle Loíza Jazz Project a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this most listenable album.”
Anne Carlini - Exclusive Magazine - CD Reviews
“….This truly magical album then rounds out with the upbeat, carnival feel of 'In Your Own Sweet Way' ,Thelonious Monk's 'Well You Needn’t' and 'There Will Never Be Another You.’”
Tom Haugen - Take Effect Reviews
“….An extremely well crafted reunion, the Calle Loiza Jazz Project know their way around a Latin jazz tune while keeping their Puerto Rican heritage close to the surface at all times…their unique and timeless approach is certainly very appreciated.“
Calle Loíza, the famous street in Santurce, Puerto Rico, has a long and colorful history as a center of culture and artistic creativity. Historically, in the late 1800s, it was an important and heavily traveled section of the road passing through Santurce for laborers from the town of Loíza en route to San Juan. It has a special significance for the members of the Calle Loíza Jazz Project, a group of friends and seasoned musicians and who came together to honor the tragic passing of their own. This recording is meant to honor his memory and the memory of the many musicians that have influenced each of them.
