Award-winning Latin jazz group, The Lunar Octet, released “Convergence” in 2021 on Summit Records. Jazziz Magazine said the CD contains “fourteen sizzling tracks.” Downbeat Magazine wrote: “Convergence bursts with joy and authority. The group sounds fresh, and the compositions spur the impulse to dance and encourage intellectual engagement at the same time.” JAZZthing Magazine said, “Great stuff. The very best of arranging and instrumental art. Not just adrenaline-soaked music but also many fine nuances and even echoes of tango.” Jazz Podium Magazine said, “Original music that’s marvelously arranged…an intense collaboration…well thought-out intensity…a multifaceted piece of art…a record that is a pleasure to return to.” Jazzism wrote: “An extremely skillfully played recording, excellent soloing, with the three horns providing the pointed accents typical of the best Latin music, and impeccable percussion.” Jazz Life Magazine said: “Colorful and tight grooves, gorgeous threehorn arrangements, and strong solos.” JazzThetik magazine said: “Beautiful examples of rhythmic complexity — a melting pot of sound that goes right to the feet.” Jazz Weekly wrote: “A festive collection of originals. Picante!” Sounds of Timeless Jazz wrote: “Convergence is a veritable mélange of world music that keeps you pumped from the intro to the last note.”
