For most of his career, trumpeter/conguero Jerry González was synonymous with the Bronx, his Fort Apache Band referencing the borough in name and in its blend of Latin and Afro-Cuban rhythms and vigorous modern jazz. After getting his start with Dizzy Gillespie, González had forged his sound through long stints with Tito Puente, McCoy Tyner and Jaco Pastorius before founding his long-running, groundbreaking band. But in 2000, his profile raised by the success of Fernando Trueba’s film Calle 54, González relocated to Spain, delved into the local flamenco culture, and gathered together a group of Madrid-based Cuban expats. He debuted his new quartet El Comando de la Clave in 2011 with a self-titled album that reinterpreted standards and jazz classics with a spine of rumba and flamenco. His sly sense of reinvention can be found even in his titles, where a Disney fairy-tale classic can take on a new, gritty urban twist on “Someday My Prints Will Come (Back From the FBI).”
