Press Release :
Raw and Uncut!!!
When the unique percussionist César Granados and his latin-jazz quartet play only three things count: groove, groove and groove! César's Salad play a selection of their favourite tunes of the latin- and brasil-jazz world, using their own arrangements.

The recording:
It is Sunday, January the 11th, 2009, when the group meets at the legendary Mastermix-Studio in Munich. The musicians decide to do the recording together, in the large room, instead of playing in separate rooms with headphones. Now they don't have the possibility to cut single tracks or to correct mistakes, but they can play together with the same great feeling as at the concerts they played during the days before. The recording which could just as well have taken place in the sixties is an instant success. The band recorded all the tunes in just one and a half hours! No wonder - after years of playing together, the group developed a very high level of listening, trust, and musicality.
Listen to : Manteca with improvised vocals and an unbelievable solo by César!

The musicians:
César Granados (congas, vocals) from Panama City is one of Europe's leading percussionists. He is playing at salsa festivals worldwide and loves coffee and cigarillos.
Jo Junghanss (piano) lives and works in New York City. He has been showered with prizes and stipendia and comes back to Munich twice a year to play and record with César's Salad and to be fed with home cooked meals.
Jerker Kluge (bass) and Hajo von Hadeln (drums) have played together as a rhythm-section for years and are the foundation for this band. They live on the same street and besides music share an interest in gin tonic and Augustiner Helles.
