For saxophonist, composer and bandleader J. Mancera, concepts such as genre and boundaries don’t exist. There are elements of jazz and soul, world music and pop, classical and Latin, but Mancera’s work conforms to none of those. What is in plentiful supply however, is melody. His is music to be absorbed and experienced, to be embraced for its warmth and vivid personality. The first time you hear Mancera his music feels instantly familiar yet, at the same time, startlingly fresh. It’s as if Mancera has drawn from a lifetime of exposure to all the globe’s sounds—and he has.
