> Read "Omar Sosa: Feeding The Soul" by journalist Richard Scheinin

Ensembles morph and multiply in the protean creative realm inhabited by master Cuban pianist, percussionist and composer Omar Sosa. One of his latest endeavors is JOG Trio, a texturally acute ensemble featuring folkloric Venezuelan percussionist Gustavo Ovalles, who contributed to seminal Sosa recordings like 2000’s Prietos and 2002’s Sentir, and German trumpeter Joo Kraus, who soloed memorably as part of Sosa's Afri-Lectric Experience on the GRAMMY-nominated 2012 album Eggun. Taking its name from the first initial of each musician, JOG recorded an eponymous CD that was released last year in Europe featuring lapidary soundscapes deeply influenced by film. Joined for the first time by the great Cuban-born saxophonist/percussionist Yosvany Terry, the ensemble sets off into uncharted territory. A leading figure in the brilliant wave of Latin American musicians reshaping the New York jazz scene, Terry has deeply explored Afro-Cuban folkloric traditions on his own projects, while collaborating with masters such as Steve Coleman, Eddie Palmieri, Branford Marsalis, Dave Douglas, and Joe Lovano. He also contributed some mesmerizing soprano sax work on Sosa’s 2015 album Ilé.

"Sosa is one of the truly illuminated minds of world jazz. He is shaping a new synthesis of Latin and American jazz. " — Billboard
"Sosa's music is the unifying sort, yoking together Africa and jazz and Latin America and hip-hop. He makes it work, being one of those rare birds whose keyboard skills are near those of Chick Corea or Chucho Valdés " — The New York Times
