Jazz is about living in the moment – experiencing the uninhibited expression of raspy notes and broad sounds dripping with improvisation. When those sounds are drizzled with Caribbean flavor, they transform an already compelling, influential musical genre. The diverse musical palate of the Caribbean is one that samples a variety of cultures. There are drums which beckon to regions of Africa, strings reminiscent of areas in Asia, and horns that shout past the edges of the Caribbean sea. When these elements are coupled with the original, bluesy notes and harmonious instrumentals, an incomparable melody that pervades all societies and cultures.

Here are seven Caribbean jazz musicians who are diversifying the world of contemporary jazz.
