On this debut Postcards album, Jorge Sylvester: MusiCollage, saxophonist and composer Jorge Sylvester has created a true fusion of Modern Jazz and Latin Music. In Sylvester's playing, the listener can hear strong influences of every great Jazz alto player from Bird through Wayne Shorter. His compositions wax poetically through the sounds of Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, and urban street music of New York and his native Panama, all with a Jazz soul. His masterful playing has put him on stages next to Jazz greats like Dave Holland and Stefon Harris.


"Sylvester shines as composer and player ... MusiCollage is the

quintessence of creative teamwork."               - JazzTimes Magazine


Critic's Choice: "a fresh, eclectic blend of straight-ahead, Latin

and avant-garde jazz styles." -                                    Billboard Magazine


On this CD, Jorge Sylvester: Musicollage (available as MP3 downloads as well), which consists entirely of his own compositions, Sylvester is joined by trumpeter Claudio Roditi, a rhythm section that includes drummer Gene Jackson and vibraphonist Monte Croft, Bobby Sanabria, an exciting, combustible encyclopedia of Latin percussion, and guitarist Marvin Sewell, who adds a contemporary urban feel. With this album, Jorge Sylvester takes us on a clever yet soulful, textured yet comprehensible, and thoughtful yet danceable musical odyssey that displays his adept playing ability, spirited musical vision, and multicultural compositions.
