Groove is at the heart of the Afro Bop Alliance’s debut release on ZOHO. While providing exciting Latin-tinged grooves that are tailor-made for dancers, the members of this Washington, DC-based, Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers inspired septet keep one foot solidly in the straight ahead jazz camp with their scintillating improvisations and tight three-horn frontline. Leader-drummer Joe McCarthy, and newest member Victor Provost bring new sparkle to the proceedings with his virtuosic steel pans playing, as does special guest Paquito D'Rivera on clarinet.
