JAZZ IS DEAD 015 (LP)
Garrett Saracho joins Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad for the 15th issue of Jazz Is Dead. Regular pressing on black vinyl.
Born in Los Angeles to fourth generation Angelenos, Garrett"s childhood was surrounded by music. The afternoons spent at his uncle"s boxing gym in Montebello introduced him to jazz, and the restaurants he worked in as a teenager exposed him to stars such as Cal Tjader and Eddie Cano. In 1973, Garrett re-emerged in the scene rejuvenated and recalibrated releasing "En Medio" - a singular vision, a multi-genre blend of Latin rhythm, headhunter-inflicted funk, and Arkestra jazz, one that could have only come from LA. Today, Garrett is ready to meet his fans, and make many more, as he wraps up his entry in the Jazz Is Dead series and records new music for the first time in decades. [info sheet from distr.]
