Seguida

SEGUIDA is a name that is very recognizable to the ardent Latin music aficionado. From their inception in 1972, Fania Record artists, Seguida had paved the way for the genre of Latin Rock to blossom. Their distinctive “East Coast” Afro-Cuban-Salsa-Rock sound grew out of the barrios of the Bronx, NY and has continued to delight audiences all over the world in present times. Included as part of the “Fania All Stars,” Seguida has toured extensively throughout the country spreading their infectious sounds of Latin-Rock-Jazz as they shared the stage with such great Latin music stars as Larry Harlow, Eddie Palmieri, Hector LaVoe, Willie Colon, and the list goes on…Their two albums on the Fania Music Label (Love is…Seguida, & On Our Way To Tomorrow…Seguida) still continue to enjoy record sales all over the world. Present day bandleader/producer/composer/drummer, Steve Adorno has rekindled the band and brought a mixture of original and new members together to record a third CD just recently released September 7, 2007 for the independent label Onroda Records. Seguida III…is a journey into the future for this well established band of musicians. Produced by the team of Steve Adorno/Jay Henry, Seguida III brings tradition plus new innovations to the genre of Latin Alternative music. Seguida enthusiasts will also be happy to see several brass arrangements by the original “El Patron” of Seguida, Randy Ortiz

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
