All Pete Escovedo profiles…
E is for Escovedo
A little bit of everything— that’s how Pete describes the stylistic flavor of his new CD, including some new twists on some old ideas.
On a descarga-style percussion jam titled "Escolandia," Shiela, Peter Michael, Juanita and Pete celebrate their family music.
Miles Away
Shades of the Cool and shadows of bebop blend with infectious funk as Pete acknowledges his jazz roots.
Mambo for Tito
The Cuban-inspired "E Street Mambo" was arranged to feature the late Tito Puente; it now serves as a memorial tribute.
