Jorge Garcia

Guitarist Jorge Garcia brings all the richness and melodic soul of Latin rhythms from his birthplace of Cuba. Garcia's intense passion for his instrument is immediately visible and colorfully audible through his unique original compositions, impeccable solos and supportive, rhythmic guitar. Jorge Garcia has performed across the globe with the renowned and impressive talents of Tony Bennett, Richie Cole, Patti Page, Andrea Bocelli, Bucky Pizzarelli, Joel Grey, Enrique Iglesias, Trini Lopez, The Drifters, and Bobby Riddell.

Garcia has recorded with his band, Athenas, as well as Carlos Oliva, Pete Minger, Richie Cole, Israel “Cachao” Lopez, Dave Muse, and actor Andy Garcia to name a few. Jorge was featured on Federico Britos’ recording “Voyage” with Eddie Gomez, Michel Camilo, Ignacio Berroa, Giovanni Hidalgo, and Kenny Barron. The talented guitarist was also recently included on the notable recording “The Hot Club of The Americas” with Cecile McLorent Salvant and Gonzalo Rubalcaba.

His new recording “Crossover” will hit the airwaves not only in the United States, but globally in 2020. The Jazz Fusion arrangements are gaining steam that will carry its unique sound across borders to countries including Canada, South America, Europe, Japan and many more starting in April 2020.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
