About Johnny Blas
This conga player and band leader is helping to update Latin Jazz for the twenty-first century. Blas knows how to keep a party moving: his music can be appreciated as dance music but it's equally rewarding as a sit-down listen with its adventurous writing, arranging, and soloing. Like jazz musicians of the past, Blas keeps one eye on entertaining the masses and the other on pleasing the jazz hounds. He creates true multigenerational, multi-ethnic party music.
