Socrates Garcia is a composer, arranger, producer, recording engineer, guitarist, keyboard player, and educator.
His latest CD, Back Home, is a modern big band project tinged with Caribbean colors. A native of the Dominican Republic, the CD is a journey back to Garcia’s musical roots. Steeped in the jazz idiom, his compositions are strongly influenced by bachata, merengue and other styles from Latin America and the Caribbean.
“This contemporary jazz big band project is bound to be another feather in the cap of a scholar and creative genius who brings multi-culture and flair to the big band stage.” ~ Musical Memoirs, Dee Dee McNeil
