“OCHOA’S QUINTET shines through Cuban classics as well as originals, including a beautiful cajón-infused rendition of Peruvian composer and singer Chabuca Granda’s “Flor de la Canela.” The leader’s emotive voice and delicate touch on nylon-string guitar make for a welcome change from the more standard fare in Latin jazz recordings, instead providing harmonic richness and rhythmical variety in an intimate setting”
Rebecca Mauleon – Jazz Times Magazine.

Featuring Jackie Richardson, Joe Sealy, Paul Novotny and Daniel Barnes.
"Africville was an area in Halifax populated by the descendants of slaves who fled the United States. Canada’s oldest black community was bulldozed under by the city in 1962.
The Montreal-born and Toronto-based Joe Sealy was living in Halifax at the time. Sealy wrote his suite — which deserves to be as well-known as Oscar Peterson’s Canadiana Suite — as a dedication to his father, who was born in Africville, and to the spirit of the place.
Although only 90 minutes in length without intermission, AFRICVILLE STORIES, like its predecessor, is a powerful, emotionally resonant fusion of song, narrative and music spanning jazz, classical, blues, R&B and gospel."
