This week on Jazz Caliente, I'll feature another song from Cuban pianist Harold López-Nussa's latest album, Te Lo Dije, revisit the uniquely gifted trumpeter Gabriel Alegria and his Afro-Peruvian Sextet, and sample something new from Brazilian drummer Vanderlei Pereira and his group The Blindfold Test.
