Yosvany Terry is truly “to the manor born.” And in this case, the manor is in Cuba. The son of Cuba’s greatest chekeré player and beloved violinist, young Yosvany prepared himself for the world stage at the prestigious National School of Arts (ENA) and Amadeo Roldán Conservatory in Havana. Apparently it worked, for his saxophone and chekeré talents have since been in constant demand by artists in the Afro-Cuban world (Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Eddie Palmieri, Chucho Valdéz) and in the American music scene (Taj Mahal, Branford Marsalis, Paul Simon). Terry’s own music is a dynamic force, celebrating both the Cuban traditions of his childhood and the cutting edge of Latin jazz that he’s helping to forge in New York and beyond, through fiery grooves, hypnotic chants, and commanding melodies. He and his bandmates are impressive musicians in their prime who are sure to deliver something fresh with an almost physical urgency....
