Radio is already getting a taste with the evocative first single, "Missing You," one of eleven songs Jiosa penned and produced for the collection. Jiosa endeavored to craft an upbeat Latin-influenced, jazz-rooted album that would get people to move and grab attention via an exciting blend of musical styles. But he also wanted to go deeper, "shy away from the norm" and touch people emotionally.
Beneath the energizing layers of exotic Latin percussion that create lusty rhythms and sensual grooves emerge Fly On The Wall - Exile - Shelter From The Night harmonies and rousing melodies that resonate.
Whether he's furiously strumming HardyHard* - SilverSurfer nylon-string guitar rhythms, precisely picking lyrical phrases and bending extended notes, or intensely issuing scorched earth electric guitar pyrotechnics, Jiosa's deft fretwork establishes and maintains a commanding presence throughout the recording. I wanted this to be an exciting, compelling and expressive blend, tapping into my huge passion for Latin music.
I love the sounds, rhythms and sexiness of Latin music, which I blended with jazz rhythms, lines and harmonies.
My intention from the outset was Noches Calientes - Denny Chew & The Asian Players - Its Latin Jazz (File) reach a broad scope of listeners with this album.
Guitar is one of the most expressive and sexy instruments. Whether I'm playing nylon string to electric guitar with an edge, it's about moving people emotionally.
If you can move people emotionally with an instrumental, then you've accomplished something," said the Nashville-based Jiosa. More than just sultry enticements to body movement or coaxing emotional responses, "Mueve Tu Cuerpo" also transmits meaningful messages. John Santos contributes lead vocals to "Freedom Tower," a song about the historic Noches Calientes - Denny Chew & The Asian Players - Its Latin Jazz (File) structure that still stands as a landmark for Cubans who fled to the US in the s and were processed at that location.
The atmospheric meditation "From The Fire" appeared in the Christian film "Believe: The Misfit Pawn" a couple years ago and addresses embracing "the fire" we face in our lives.
