This group is the continuation of The Jinga Trio (with Alon Yavnai and Steve Langone) and The Toucan Trio (with Helio Alves and Steve Langone).

"The Jinga Quintet is the latest chapter of a long musical collaboration between Boston drummer Steve Langone and myself. It's the continuation of The Jinga Trio (with Alon Yavnai and Steve Langone) and before The Toucan Trio (with Helio Alves and Steve Langone).

We are very pleased and grateful with the new direction of the music and the addition of the extraordinary talents of Avi, Miguel and Luis. Recording this album was a great experience and lots of fun, can't wait to see this band develop and mature on the road".

"A smart, modern Latin jazz record by some of the best young musicians on the New York scene. Avishai E. Cohen, an Israeli trumpeter who's lighting up New York, joins Miguel Zenon on the front line. The rhythm section includes Luis Perdomo on piano, the group's leader Fernando Huergo on electric bass and Steve Langone on drums. The material moves from a Latin version of Night and Day to tunes that sound a bit like the timba-jazz that's sneaking out of Havana and its environs. It's the sound of the present, not meant for the radio, but for people who know good music. Recommended."

Peter Watrous (December 5, 2003)
