Cuban Pianist, Vocalist, Composer & Producer Roberto Fonseca

Welcome to a new edition of the Neon Jazz interview with Cuban pianist, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and bandleader Roberto Fonseca .. He is Cuban-born and based and  has released nine solo albums, collaborated across genres, been nominated for a Grammy Award and toured the world several times over .. We caught up with him about his lastest album – the  2019 CD Yesun .. So, his father played the drums and his mother was a dancer .. That swayed him quite a bit .. his first professional gig was in a Beatles cover band – before taking up piano aged eight. He has been composing his own music since adolescence. He has been called an artist with prowess and ideas -  with a questing jazz sensibility and deep roots in the Afro-Cuban tradition .. So, get to know him and the band and dig this interview my friends ..
