About the album

In 2006 Blanco y Negro released an acclaimed album. The band’s recording and live performan- ces merging Cuban music and Scandinavian jazz caused quite a stir. The band hibernated for a while, but in 2014 the appearance of the amazing pianist Abel Marcel sparked Blanco y Negro to life again.

Marcel is at home in the Cuban tradition, but he is also a vibrant improviser in modern jazz as a member of saxophonist David Murray’s group. With the addition of Swedish sax player Karl- Martin Almqvist – a member of the Danish Radio Big Band – Blanco y Negro was reborn. The new Blanco y Negro features the original rhythm sec- tion: Jonas Johansen is one of Denmark’s leading drummers. He has appeared on more than 170 albums, and he has performed with a long list of international stars including Mike Stern, Steve Swallow and Eliane Elias. Eliel Lazo is word- renowned for his conga playing (Herbie Hancock, the Danish Radio Big Band, Savage Rose, Wayne Shorter), and Cuban Yasser Morejon is a very popular bassist in many varying contexts. This powerful ensemble plays with an international sound inspired by the heritage of its members – Denmark, Sweden and Cuba – as well as the many places they have traveled digesting the local music.
