Juan Pablo Torres was always looking for "something new". Back in his native Cuba his group was known as "Algo Nuevo" because he was always exploring innovative approaches to traditional Cuban music. In contrast with jazz groups like Irakere, which brought Cuban elements into a jazz concept, Juan Pablo preferred to bring the jazz art of improvisation into the Afro-Cuban experience - something that music legends Cachao and Chico O'Farril had started doing in the 50's. "Pepper Trombone", his second recording for TropiJazz will attest to that. Ever restless and never one to rest on his laurels, Juan Pablo has shifted gears once again. This time he focused his efforts on bringing together a musical concept that relies on musicians' constant communications to create a distinctive, recognizable voice. Not an easy task.
