All About The Jaguar Sound

By: Laurie Gallardo

El sonido, tan rico. Las melodías, tan hermosas. And let us not forget those badass beats. To think it all emerged from the depths of a soul-crushing pandemic…

Adrian Quesada spent those isolated days on long bike rides, followed by late nights in the studio experimenting with practically any sounds that came to mind, from hip-hop beats to snippets he recorded from the natural world. Eventually, this sonic journal capturing a specific moment in time evolved into twelve tracks of alluring, cinematic instrumental brilliance and a (virtual) gathering of epic talent that became Jaguar Sound. Such a superb follow-up to the sultry Boleros Psicod​é​licos, Quesada’s enamored homage to the Cuban bolero, with those signature soul and psychedelic touches.

Tonight is the night to experience the magic live with Adrian Quesada’s Jaguar Sound, taking over Dell Hall at The Long Center, 701 W. Riverside Dr. Once again, it’s an all-star band including special guests Mireya Ramos, Angélica Garcia and Clemente Castillo. ¡Qué magnífico! The show begins at 8 p.m. And word is, tickets are disappearing. Jump on it.
