MARTES JAZZ SOUND EN EL IX CICLO DE JAZZ DE CARACAS La agrupación venezolana Martes Jazz Sound se estará presentando este viernes 31 de mayo en el IX Ciclo de Jazz de Caracas, que se celebra en el Centro Cultural BOD-Corp Banca, de La Castellana. Martes Jazz Sound (su nombre actual) nace en 1989 como Martes 8:30 cuando un grupo de músicos caraqueños decide reunirse todos los martes a las 8:30 pm a compartir inquietudes e ideas musicales, convirtiendo cada reunión en una experiencia creativa y a la vez tener un mecanismo de escape al estrés cotidiano. Es la agrupación musical del género de jazz-fusión de mayor trayectoria en nuestro país. Con seis producciones discográficas y próximos a lanzar su séptimo registro, Martes Jazz Sound sigue alimentando el jazz de Venezuela.
