Oscar Feldman
Oscar e Familia
(Sunnyside Music)

Saxophonist Oscar Feldman has produced a spirited and enjoyable work of latin jazz artistry with his latest recording, Oscar e Familia. The album is comprised mostly of songs that Feldman wrote. He dedicates many of the album’s ten tracks to members of his family. The album is the beneficiary of some great musical performances and talents like drummer Antonio Sanchez, saxophonist Mark Turner, Manuel Valera on keyboards and piano Diego Urcola on trumpet and Pernell Saturino on percussion. The inclusion of the Cuartetango String Quartet on the session is a very nice addition on this funky, swinging, and, at times, soothing musical collection.
