Afro Cuban Jazz, Jazz and Classical

"My compositions are a mixture of infectious Afro-Cuban dance rhythms and sensual jazz harmonies. Listening to this music is like eating a bowl of gumbo or asopao. One doesn't merely listen to this music...one must feel and taste the rhythm.  The traditions are old, the music is new."
- Joel

"September's Child is a masterpiece of a recording offering a palette of Afro-Cuban rhythms with a touch of the classical and slice of straight jazz making for one compelling debut."
