TIME ZONE plays an innovative “deep fusion” of Cuban music and Jazz – soulful, catchy and rhythmically provocative. Cuban elements are re-assembled, as in collage, or mutated to fit odd meters more common in eastern Europe, yet still with a Cuban feel… Bilingual compositions where the groove can change in mid flow, like suddenly turning a corner, a new view opening up, another way of looking at things.
“This album from Cuba-devoted Hackney trumpeter Loz Speyer means what its title says, all the way from the imaginative fusions of Cuban dance forms and pungent contemporary jazz of his Time Zone sextet, to the snaps of Santiago and his Cuban family’s hard-won travel documents on the artwork.” – The Guardian
