Javier Santiago – Phoenix

Via ropeadope “From Minneapolis to Stockton CA to NYC, Javier Santiago’s path has been in earnest, searching for the right combination of musical knowledge, skill, and influence. Selected to attend the Brubeck Institute, Javier learned from greats like Christian McBride, Robert Glasper, Nicholas Payton, and Joshua Redman before heading to the New School to further his study. Outside of class Santiago honed his production skills as well, and now he brings his world to the fore with the album Phoenix, an exploration in Jazz with the core band of Corey Fonville, Zach Brown, Dayna Stephens, Ben Flocks, and Nir Felder. Phoenix is what people might have called ‘Future Jazz’ just a few years ago – but the future is now so we’ll just call it Jazz.”
