Susan Jones plays Jazz violin with a Latin flavor. Total playing time is approx. 56 minutes.
You might wonder how a nice Jewish girl from the Bronx ended up writing so many Latin, and Salsa tunes. As explanation, I can only say this was the result of a scheduling error in the ninth grade. After requesting French and Orchestra, I was assigned Spanish and Band. The rest is history.
As a violinist in the Washington D.C. area, I play many types of music, some usual and some unusual. Aside from the more typical Classical, Gypsy, and Country music, I also play Rock, Klezmer, Mariachi, and Jazz. This CD, which contains mostly my original music, is Jazz and Latin Jazz., but all of my musical past haunts me as I play, and you will certainly hear these other influences.
Some of the best players in the DC area join me on "Violin Caliente." Check it out. You can’t miss having great time.
