"Grooves in the Temple" Review -

Review by renowned jazz historian Bruce Crowther on his website "Swing 2 Bop".

Jorge Pescara "Grooves In The Temple" (JSR VPB 114 CD)

This first CD as leader by bassist Jorge Pescara demonstrates why he has built a strong following not only with audiences but also among his fellow musicians. Vibrant and exhilarating music making from a highly talented musician. There are many other fine musicians on this CD including drummer Dom Um Romão, singer Ithamara Koorax and saxophonist José Carlos Ramos. Jorge has drawn his repertoire for this set from an interesting mixture of sources, including music by Jimi Hendrix, Eumir Deodato (who also guests on the CD), Bob Dorough and Ben Tucker, as well as contributing some of his original compsositions.
