Sammy Figueroa inviting us to co-finance his upcoming album…

Sammy Figueroa‘s dedication to music seems like never ending. Open to wide horizons, he has worked with people as diverse as Miles Davis, Chic, Quincy Jones, Chet Baker, Stanley Clarke, David Bowie, Eddie Palmieri or Mariah Carey, Luther Vandross, Usef Lateef (not to mention Austrian producers dZihan & Kamien on ‘Stiff Jazz’) among countless others…

Sammy FigueroaOn a personal tip, I had the chance meeting him quite incidentally during the Miami Winter Music Conference at a bar where he was havin’ a drink. By the time we finished our conversation, It was agreed he would come and play percussion on the music I would be playing at a gig the day after, which he generously did. I would soon after being said about who he was and what he’d one before, with the two of us eventually jamming together again at King Street’s 10th Anniversary party.
No need telling you how, being in the position to give him a little help now, I would deeply appreciate you takin’ a bit of your time, read the story thereafter and eventually give your contribution, whatever it is, with the assurance it will be awarded with a nice return by the likes of our brother, Sammy

The story so far…
“My team and I are very excited about the music on my next album. Silvano Monasterios and Gabriel Vivas have written some brilliant original compositions and arrangements that combine the rhythms of Latin jazz with true beauty. We’ve just finished a little tour of New York and Boston where we played this music in public for the first time and the reaction from the crowd was amazing. In Boston on Saturday January 17th we had a wildly enthusiastic sold-out crowd with extended standing ovations and encores.
Recent developments around this album include the addition of Ray Chew to our production team. Ray is an old friend (we toured together with Ashford & Simpson back in the day) and has so much positive energy. He was musical director for American Idol, for the BET Awards and lately for the Miss Universe Pageant. He joins my longtime producer Rachel Faro as co-producer for the album.
Our record label, Savant Records, is also very excited about this music they are expecting to release the album in June 2015. So we need to finish it soon…”

With warm thanks in advance, including for spreading the word as much as you can on the social networks, or wherever you may… [More here…]
