Jazz guitarist Gabriel Vicéns was born in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, and currently makes his home base in New York City, where he's made a career composing and playing with the likes of jazz legend Eddie Gómez, David Sánchez, Will Vinson, John Benitez, Luis Perdomo, Joe Martin, and Henry Cole, among others.

He's just released a new single on the Outside In Music label called Coming Back. Gabriel describes it as, "an expressive blend of modern jazz with Afro-Puertorican folklore."

The piece revolves around a theme played on the piano, met first with a churning percussion line, then echoed by the horns. It's melodic and expressive, with a sense of the restrained energy of the rhythm section underneath the more languid trumpet solo. The sax offers a more kinetic improvisational stretch, bouncing off the piano, and the guitar a pattern of liquid gold.

Personnel: Gabriel Vicéns, Alex Sipiagin, David Sánchez, Jonathan Suazo, Bienvenido Dinzey, Dan Martinez, Leonardo Osuna, Paoli Mejias
