Jazz Is Dead" has become one of the most popular labels in the L.A. underground and jazz scene, thanks to its first series of 10 releases, which were successfully completed even in the midst of the Corona disaster, when the label was unable to hold the live events that are the starting point of the label. The fifth installment of the second series is now available. This fifth installment of the series, which is now approaching its midpoint, features the most "rare groove" living legend including the first series, Garrett Saracho!

Garrett Saracho is one of the most enigmatic figures in jazz. He has been in touch with the musicians of the jazz scene in the Watts area of Los Angeles since he was a teenager, assembled by Horace Tapscott's legendary Pan-African People's Arkestra, and signed to the prestigious impulse! The 1973 album "En Medio," released on the label in 1973, was a target of the label's cost-cutting efforts against the backdrop of the Middle East oil embargo and never received the promotion it deserved, but it was a disappointing work that effortlessly blended jazz, funk, and Latin rock. The music has remained a cult classic among a small group of rare groove collectors. After the commercial failure of the only album of his career, he turned from vibraphonist to pianist. He played with Jimi Hendrix, but then moved from the music industry to behind-the-scenes work in movies, and was out of the recording world, but after a passionate love call from Adrian Young and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, who loved his early musicality, he stepped into the studio once again. He decided to step into the studio. This album is a fusion of Latin soul, funk, and Adrian's signature psychedelic jazz. The quality of "Sabor del Ritmo" and "El Cambio Es Neccesario" is outstanding. While the quality of "Sabor del Ritmo" and "El Cambio Es Neccesario" are outstanding, "Trucha," which is a mixture of Latin, rock, and breakbeats, is a unique and unique experience for Adrian Ali, a hip-hop generation member who has listened to Babe Ruth and the Incredible Bongo Band. The song is a concentrated collaboration that transcends generations. The Gardens," a gentle black jazz track, is also a wonderful work that follows the series of "Jazz is Dead" tracks, and is a must for both the core vinyl diggers who have been listening to the album for a long time and the new generation who recently discovered "En The Gardens" is also a great album, following in the footsteps of "Jazz Is Dead," and is sure to satisfy not only the core vinyl diggers who have always loved it, but also a new generation of jazz fans who have recently discovered "En Medio" and jazz listeners who have yet to experience its talent!
