On his sweeping, eclectic Farenheit Records debut The Fruit of Eden, Costa Rican-born veteran composer/percussionist/drummer Luis Munoz draws upon his rich Latin music heritage, a formal classical education, and an intense interest in American jazz to create a colorful pastiche where melody easily crosses all rhythmic and cultural lines. Co-produced by Dominic Camardella (who has helmed projects for Maynard Ferguson, Ottmar Liebert, and Willie & Lobo), The Fruit of Eden marks Munoz' U.S. recording debut with an explosive introduction to a talent that has been wowing Latin America for many years.
This is Luis' USA CD debut. This version is a limited edition version, released by Luis' own label, Pelin Music, before being picked up by by Fahrenheit Records and released worldwide!
