NEW RELEASE. Bobby Sanabria. West Side Story Reimagined
Aids Puerto Rican Relief Effort

There’s every reason to hope that Steven Spielberg’s remake of “West Side Story” will improve upon the 1961 film, but I doubt if we’ll ever hear a more thrilling interpretation of that immortal score  than that of the Bobby Sanabria Multiverse Big Band.

- Will Friedwald-Wall Street Journal 



"It’s the most ambitious reimagining of the music I have ever heard!” 
Jamie Bernstein
 
"You have never heard such an ambitious, complex, and satisfying remake of that classic. Sanabria, an amazing drummer, draws deep from his Puerto Rican heritage to give this Leonard Bernstein masterpiece a roots-authentic update that’s heavy on Latin jazz influences and full of peppy, energetic rhythms."
Tom Henry – Toledo Blade
 
"Among other things, it’s a master class in Latin rhythms. Just get it"
Ken McCarthy - Jazz on the Tube
 
"If you're a fan of either Latin jazz or West Side Story, this album is a feast of those flavors."
Marc Phillips – thevinylanarchist.com/blogspot
 
"The infusion of Latin rhythms that Mr. Sanabria uses is a big part of what makes this album so stunning."
   Dick Metcalf – Contemporary Fusion Reviews
 
 "it’s a love letter to Bernstein as well as a reclamation, tracing his evocation back to the source."
Nate Chinen - WBGO

 
"A triumphant, Latin-flavored reimagining of Leonard Bernstein’s masterwork West Side Story.
Bill Milkowski - Downbeat

Recorded live at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in NYC, this exciting new reimagining is West Side Story like you’ve never heard it before as performed by the amazing multi-Grammy nominated 21 piece Bobby Sanabria Multiverse Big Band. This set includes an accompanying 16 page booklet containing rare photographs of Maestro Leonard Bernstein, along with the timeless music of West Side Story featuring the rhythms of various Latin American countries with exciting breaking-down-the-wall instrumental big band arrangements all done through the lens of the Latin jazz continuum.

 

It’s the most ambitious reimagining of the music I have ever heard!”
- Jamie Bernstein

 

Partial proceeds from this special commemorative set will be donated to the Jazz Foundation of America's Puerto Rico Relief Fund. The island has been completely devastated by hurricanes Irma and Maria and the government’s response has been less than adequate. What better way to help my ancestral homeland Puerto Rico and its people, than through the music of West Side Story Reimagined. - Bobby Sanabria
