Salsa World Wide - Japan - Nettai Tropical Jazz Big Band.

Nettai Tropical Jazz Big Band is a Japanese latin jazz big band led by Carlos Kanno from Orquesta de la Luz.
The Nettai Tropical Jazz Big Band started out as a group of friends playing for fun and evolved into an 19-piece ensemble. Boasting five percussionists, a three-piece rhythm section, and powerful horns, the group released their first album Live in Yokohama in 1998. They have played at various jazz festivals and venues, including Carnegie Hall in New York, United States.

Who would have ever thought at the time of their emergence that an all Japanese band would be playing Latin music!!! It turned out to be a positive new twist to the world of Latin music and dance.
The Nettai Tropical Jazz Big band is a competent, professional big-band that makes salsa and Latin jazz, with a full, round sound, steady rhythms, and enough sizzle to get you dancing.
