It’s difficult to say more about the Carlos Odria Trio’s new album, “El Rio,” other than that it’s gorgeous: Stunningly, jaw-droppingly, trying-not-to-weep-at-work beautiful. Guitarist Odria and his cohorts...serve up a tapestry of Spanish music inflected with jazz that’s captivating from beginning to end...

El Rio...this one of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful pieces of work in recent memory, each note flowing with seeming ease into an exquisite tapestry. The all-instrumental album catches the listener in a riptide of jazz and Spanish guitar, carrying them away to a musical place that’s achingly beautiful.

The Carlos Odria Trio is a high-energy group that performs original compositions and arrangements of jazz standards and Latin American popular music.


COT delivers an exciting blend of international styles such as cumbia, bossanova, rumba flamenca, and other Afro-Latin-inspired grooves with an improvisational approach inspired by the rich tradition of American jazz.
