From Mexico’s most established and prolific jazz musician, Brownswood Recordings is proud to present the new album from Tino Contreras, ‘La Noche de los Dioses’. Here, Tino Contreras presents a sonic gift; a kaleidoscope of evolving and shifting spiritual rumination about life and humanity. His new work features seven new recordings, contemporary jazz themes liquiscing with 3/4 rhythms, written and recorded in Mexico City, 2020.

This album is fresh - reinforcing the need to recognise, research and acknowledge the voices of the past as they still electrify us out of the numbing routine of the present, elegantly propelling us forward. Born in 1924 in Chihuahua, in Northwest Mexico, to a family of musicians, Contreras kicked off his fascination with the drum kit as a very young child. He was surrounded by music, raised by his father who led the OK Jazz Band orchestra, which inspired Tino to move to Ciudad Juárez where he formed his own orchestra. You could find Tino sharing stages with the likes of Dave Brubeck, Art Blakey, Louis Armonstrong and many more greats, experiences that have led Contreras to conjure up many a hypnotic track fuelled by an erudite, flawless rhythm section and unyielding brass and bass.
