Ninety Miles (aka David Sanchez, Stefon Harris and Christian Scott) have a new album out now exclusively on iTunes!! 'Ninety Miles Live At Cubadisco' was recorded May 18, 2010 at Cubadisco, one of the biggest music festivals in Cuba, at Teatro Amadeo Roldán in Havana, with the help of some highly talented Cuban musicians -- pianists Harold López-Nussa and Rember Duharte, each leading their own quartets. This seven-song live set further explores the chemistry of Ninety Miles and takes their virtuosity to another level as musicians from different cultures converse in a common language that transcends words.

Contributor Jared Bailey recently attended the 2011 Atlanta Jazz Festival. In case you missed it, his photoblog of the event can be found here. Jared also shot a video of the Ninety Miles Project, featuring Stefon Harris, David Sanchez, and Christian Scott (still trying to figure out who the other members of the band were...). The song is called "La Fiesta Va".

2011 Atlanta Jazz Festival Photoblog

For the past few of days, I’ve been trying to figure out if I wanted to write a “review” of the Atlanta Jazz Festival or not. After deep contemplation, I realized that there aren’t really words to describe what took place there. All I can really tell you is that Sean Jones celebrated his birthday with an absolutely killing set; the Ninety Miles Project (of Stefon Harris, David Sanchez, and Christian Scott) closed the festival with their unofficial listening party, and Gerald Clayton, well, is Gerald Clayton (what more can I say?). I can’t talk about this year’s jazz festival without talking about the great young talent presented by local high school and community jazz bands. There was a middle school cat on tenor sax that could chop off a few heads already. Did I mention Christian McBride was featured with Baltimore’s own Warren Wolf’s group on electric bass?! Yeah, I know, you’re kicking yourself profusely right about now for not going. If I was on the other side of the computer, I’d kick you, too, but since I’m not, I’ll add insult to injury and give you guys a slight taste of what I was able to experience Memorial Day weekend. Maybe next year you’ll wise up.

So I was minding my own business yesterday and Concord posted a link on Facebook to download a free MP3 from the upcoming Ninety Miles album. We've talked about this project featuring David Sanchez, Christian Scott and Stefon Harris a few times already (here, here and here). Figured I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't share the love. Here's your chance to download "Nengueleru" off the Ninety Miles album to be released on June 21st courtesy of Concord Records!

If the meeting of Christian Scott, Stefon Harris and David Sanchez in Cuba wasn't awesome enough, well Concord just announced that the Ninety Miles Project will be released as a combo CD + DVD. What's even more awesome is that the label just released a 5 minute trailer for the documentary. Enjoy!
