Album Description

Composer and musician, Ray Sandoval, has used his music to advocate for social change throughout his career:  From Los Angeles based Chicano rock group, Quetzal, to his more recent collaborations with world-renowned art activist Ai Weiwei.  His latest solo project, WHAT IS NOW, features a diverse group of acclaimed musicians from Los Angeles to London, Berlin and Barcelona:  It was recorded, in part, during the Covid-19 lockdown.  “WHAT IS NOW is a question but also a statement, my reflection on the tectonic shifts occurring in our world today.  It is both a departure and a return:  An exploration beyond the boundaries of my earlier work as well as a homecoming with old friends.”

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
