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.
