Cabo Frio discography Cabo Frio Biography
A fusion of ideas, cultural identities, and genres of music is the best way to describe veteran jazz group Cabo Frio. Emerging from the musically fertile Upstate New York region-home to a host of other acclaimed musicians like Cab Calloway, Chuck Mangione, and Steve Gadd. Cabo Frio's beginnings date back to 1979, when members of the group from the Rochester-Buffalo area joined forces.
Over the past two decades, the group has recorded six albums and toured with the likes of Buddy Rich, Phyllis Hyman, Jeff Lorber, Joan Jett, The Yellow Jackets, Dave Valentine, Paquito D'Rivera, The Crusaders, and Joe Sample.

Reunited for Island Dance were original members Curtis Kendrick (drummer/founder/producer), pianist Joe Santora, guitarist Marc Copani, plus talented newcomer bassist Mark Russell. Also featured is one of the foremost woodwind artist and educators Chris Vadala who is newly ...
