During the Smooth Jazz Festival Augsburg 2010 I had the opportunity to attend a concert of the group Akusticos. Their fresh smooth jazz performance received great applause of the audience and all listeners trust in the splendid future of these young musicians.
Akusticos are John Odio (sax) and Walter »Chepe« Blanco (guitar). This band from San Jose, Costa Rica plays together since ten years and shows top-quality music. In more musicians are needed, they also perform as trio or with six musicians in the maximum formation.
The group plays rock, pop, smooth jazz, ballads, Latin music or oldies. According to their website they are characterized by professionalism, seriousness, responsibility, punctuality and good treatment to their customers and the public.
Their debut album Lluvia (2010) was released by Print Sound UG, a German label. A young company, which has set itself the task of making saxophone music popular.
