Ninety Miles is the distance between Miami and Havana, the closest points in the US and Cuba. This project, the companion CD to a documentary due later this summer, comes from New Orleans-born trumpeter Christian Scott, Puerto Rican saxophonist David Sánchez, and New York vibraphonist Stefon Harris. It's the latest in a long line of artistic efforts to bridge that divide and emphasize the musical, cultural and historical kinships between the two nations. For Scott, as for many New Orleans musicians, the similarities hit close to home. He says in the documentary: "You want to make music there because you can tell that the people have a steady diet of good music...It's like the music makes the people feel like everything's gonna be okay." He's talking about Cuba, but he may as well be talking about his hometown, especially when he goes on to call music in Cuba a kind of communal catharsis.

Recorded in Havana, the music on Ninety Miles displays the Caribbean roots that connect traditional Cuban music with US jazz and New Orleans, but it looks relentlessly forward. Scott, Harris, and Sánchez, along with the Cuban pianists Rember Duharte and Harold López-Nussa, whose separate quartets fill out the album, are modern jazz players through and through. Their compositions are ambitious, harmonically and rhythmically complex, and diversely influenced. After a couple of listens, it's easy to distinguish between Harris' blues-gospel melodies, the Afro-Cuban bebop Sánchez studied in Dizzy Gillespie's band, and Scott's wide-ranging jazz fusion. Each is a virtuosic performer in his own right, and the real pleasure in Ninety Miles is when the whole band gets cooking. The interplay between these masters and the expert rhythm sections behind them moves the project well past its efforts in musicology or history. This is a session, not a study. Communal catharsis, indeed.--Jacob Leland, OffBeat Magazine, July 2011 issue.

What a fantastic blend of Jazz with the amazing rhythmic force from Cuba. The whole band turns it out and with the extra enclosed DVD, it gives you a real sense about how the music was performed live. All 3 musicians from the United States are leaders of their own groups, but together they create some intense music. Stefon Harris executes some ripping fast yet beautifully flowing solos. David Sanchez, with his Hispanic background, has no problem with the Latin Jazz groove and his playing is intense. Christian Scott, who I don't know as well as the others, is an excellent technician in his own right and is an excellent addition. The Cuban rhythm section I did not recognize but all of them are amazing musicians and together the music is exquisite. What an amazing project!! I highly recommend it.

I've been a fan of Christian Scott ever since he came up on the scene a few years ago. I was very impressed with his earlier work. I am not convinced that he is the next big thing in contemporary jazz. Joining Stefon Harris and David Sanchez, this jazz trio presents a refreshing new look at jazz and Cuban culture. The concept of the album is apolitical, but the music is deeply emotional and wonderful to hear. Made it through 4 times already, and each song is a keeper! There's no skippers...can't wait to spend more time with it. Thanks for the great music!
