The Alec Castro Octet creates dynamic hard bop on new album 'Paseo'
(Published: June 22, 2019)

The eight musicians on Paseo are able to create such a dynamic, extensive and thick texture of sounds, making for a rich and lush tone.

Paseo marks an important milestone for New York-based composer/arranger Alec Castro and his group. As a pianist, Castro himself is an amazing leader for this ensemble, coming up with intricate melodies and seamless phrases, creating a great backbone for the songs.

One of the most intriguing aspects of this release is definitely the fact that they stayed true, not only to the sound, but also to the production aesthetics of classic Big Band jazz. As a result, this record has the sound of yesteryear with the energy and verve of contemporary production, bridging the gaps between the best of both worlds. For young and old fans of the genre, it has the ability to unite both traditional and progressive tastes. Castro has a keen ear for hard bop and what works within that format.
