Daniel DeAguero has been making his own unique brand of smooth, spiritual jazz for more than four decades. And after producing seven virtuoso albums, the talented jazz guitarist and vocalist is ready to bring some new followers into his army of fans with the release of his new CD, ‘Can You Feel It?’
The album has already found its way onto radio stations across the States, but now this startlingly original collection of smooth and straight-up jazz is available to buy. Aided by saxophonist Tony ‘TAZ’ Sandoval, DeAguero has crafted a record that will delight jazz heads and casual listeners, old fans and new alike.
'Can You Feel It?' is, in many ways, a culmination of the artist’s musical journey. It still has a strong latin infuence, present in allDeAguero’s music, but is still very much a jazz record. It is anembodiment of the man’s soul, his emotions, his life as a musician and, most importantly, his faith.
Having started his career playing in churches as a teen, the spiritual life has always been a big influence in DeAguero’s music. It has informed his playing and his songwriting and it is abundant on his latest record. And it is this combustible mix of the spiritual, of latin rhythms and of a well-honed jazz sensibility that truly makes him stand out from the crowd.
And 'Can You Feel It?' has already been making waves across theheartland of America’s jazz fraternity and beyond. Tracks from thealbum are already in the top 10 on radio playlists from New Jersey to Texas, and there’s even been airtime given over to DeAguero’s virtuoso playing as far away as the UK, Japan and Australia.
In reality, DeAguero is only doing what he has done most of his life: writing, singing and playing great music with his heart and soul. His only goal is to share his gifts with the world. If the first reaction to this record is anything to go by, plenty of the world is beginning to take notice.
