Cafêzz is a Puerto Rican based Latin Jazz a Word Fusion band

Cafêzz is a Puerto Rican based Latin Jazz & Word Fusion band. The band's style is very eclectic, embracing a wide array of Caribbean, Brazilian, Latin, Jazz, Funk, Rock, Folk and Classical influences.“Cafêzz” is, in fact, the combination of the words café (coffee in Spanish) and jazz, and it captures their notion that a customary coffee moment could also be an occasion to share music with friends.

Their original music presents an ample melodic content combined with tasty rhythms, giving the listener rich aural textures to enjoy with ease. The band’s diverse repertoire is available on two awarded album releases: “Music & Friends”(2014) and “Sol Boricua”(2016). Even though it includes elements from jazz, its performance is not focused on individual instrument virtuosity, but relies on the ensemble’s communication and interaction.

Cafêzz was formed in San Juan, Puerto Rico during the summer of 2014 by pianist Carmen Noemí and bassist Edgardo "Egui" Sierra, after completion and release of their Music & Friends CD, the group adopted several formats. The trio’s interplay included drummer Freddie Burgos, and made it easy to add Christian Galíndez on “latin percussion” (quartet), Norberto "Tiko" Ortíz on saxophone (Cafêzz Quintet); and Waldemar Reyes on “ethnic percussion” (sextet format).
