Jammin Anyone?

Carlos Cervantes announces a concert without knowing exactly with whom he'll be playing; afterward; musicians arrive and play their parts. They are not always the same, but they are the best musicians that New York has to offer. Jack Jeffers and Enrique Fernandez were preparing the details of their big band "New York Classics" next performance, but when they heard what Carlos was going to play, they forgot their own concert: "When is Carlos playing? Let me know I used to go to his midnight concerts in the 80's I'm coming when he plays!" The same has been said by many other musicians since

Carlos began to play and the list is surprising not only for the quantity, but also for the quality of names of those who come since the initiation of Luis Miguel of a production of Lupita D'alessio an her collaboration with Jaco Pastorius. Carlos Cervantes mentions that he gets musical influence from Julian Carrillo, and he has incorporated some of the Mexican composers' styles into his own. Carlos Cervantes prefers to define his music as a form of spiritual jazz, if it had to be categorized.
