Trumpeter, pianist, vocalist, and writer Juan Oskar was born and raised in Arizona. While honing his chops in several Latino bands growing up, his love for his roots and rock ‘n’ roll grew. Today Oskar has come around full circle full circle with the new release Christmas Is For Grownups Too.
Oskar’s Influences include Pizzazz & Latino Los Lobos, Selena, John Williams, Tito Puente, Santana, Herb Alpert, Cubanismo, Maynard Ferguson, Julius Wechter, and Leroy Anderson. The challenge for any listener will be to hear all of those influences coming through at any time during the run of each track. In the end, that is what makes this album so much fun. He also offers some vocals in Spanish, rocks out, throws in some Ventures licks here and there, and comes up with something so unique and entertaining that you will be reaching for this CD at any time of the year. He does this consistently in all 24 tracks. Attention grabbing compositions like "Fur Elise" and "Decking The Halls in 1966" are bound to give lovers of pure and original music a grin from ear to ear.
The challenge for Oskar on this extensive Holiday release was to take all of his influences and put them together to make it an enjoyable experience for those who enjoy good music and love having their hearts filled with the spirit if the Holidays. Ultimately, he succeeds in covering all the bases on this pleasing release.
This year around the holidays look no further than Juan Oskar to put a jingle in your jangle and some ho-ho in your step with Christmas Is For Grownups Too.
