A fantastic premier release from the one-of-a-kind Afro-Cuban band led by Cuban percussion wizard Pedrito Martinez. The group, universally praised for their sensational live performances, has already played at major international festivals (Bonnaroo, Monterey Jazz Festival, Montreux Jazz) and is on the fast track to major stardom. Produced by Steve Gadd, The Pedrito Martinez Group's eponymous debut Motema album showcases their unique fusion of timba and jazz, impossibly-tight percussion-driven arrangements and infectiously uplifting four-part harmonies, and features living legends Wynton Marsalis and John Scofield.
