Hailing from Cuba, the AC Jazz Project is a “who’s who” of former members from some of Cuba and the United States’ greatest jazz and dance bands such as Paolo FG, Haila, Maraca, NG La Banda, Orchestra Reve and Grupo Afrocuba. The Project throws down some serious timba, Cuba’s hottest dance music, and presents a fusion of Afro-Cuban jazz improvisations mixed with Cuban music genres such as rumba and salsa Cubana. The band plays in honor of late world class Cuban percussionist Long John Oliva, who formed AC Jazz Project in 2001 with his wife Peggy Jo (PJ) Oliva.
“Brace yourself for an extraordinary musical experience via the Afro Cuban Jazz Project.” –Tomas Peña, Latin Jazz Network.
