Magos Herrera presents “Mexico Azul” a contemporary vision of Mexican classics from the 30's and 40's, pieces like ""Noche Criolla"" by Agustin Lara , ""Angelitos Negros"", once sang by the unforgettable Pedro Infante and ""Seguire mi viaje"" by Alvaro Carrillo, among others, supported by a prime New York band including Tim Hagans, Luis Perdomo, Adam Rogers, John Patitucci, Alex Kautz and Rogerio Boccatto produced by Tim Ries.


"The Mexican-born Herrera sings in Spanish, English and Portuguese. But really, what she does transcends language. Blending elements from various traditions, she's stretching the very notion of jazz singing, pushing past the diva pleasantries into a sound that's bold, thrilling and effortlessly global.
Tom Moon for NPR radio 06/09)

��Herrera creates a thoroughly modern expression of jazz performance and Latin culture on Distancia, easily holding the weight of an intelligent and complex sound with her prodigious musicianship.� The Latin Jazz Corner by Chip Boaz
