JMancera – Mancera #5

Mancera #5Jaime Mancera is truly a musician of the world. Born in Bogota, Colombia, Jaime emerged as a musician, composer and songwriter. While growing up in Bogota, Jaime first discovered music when his uncle taught him to whistle when he was just four years old. To this day, Jaime composes his melodies by first whistling them into his iPhone.

By the time he reached high school, he was studying music formally and soon after, he was traveling the world as a session artist, band member and composer. He toured with singer Leonardo Fabio throughout Latin America as a saxophonist and flutist. Nominated for a Latin Grammy as part of the band Los Alfa Ocho, Jaime is a virtuoso player with influences from his roots in Colombia to early 60s Motown and beyond.

When Jaime first arrived in the United States, all he brought was his saxophone and his dreams. Now after 25 years on the New York music scene, Jaime has finally recorded all the melodies dancing in his head for his first full length album of music that mingles soul, pop and jazz to create a sound that defies categorization.
