Imraan's first studio album, a fresh perspective on Brazilian / Latin / NYC jazz.
"My earliest childhood memories pulse with the deep vibrations of one-drop bass supporting Hugh Mundell, Horace Andy, and Dennis Brown. High school memories ring with the surgical precision of Charlie Parker, the playful mastery of Sonny Rollins. University memories resonate with the dazzling ensemble lines of Don Menza, the intricacies of Nestico and Mancini arrangements. Then came my fascination with Cuban rhythms, my love affair with the music of Brazil, and above all else, my everlasting love of Eric Dolphy.
Começando presents these formative influences in a manner that seeks to connect with a broad audience."
