This week Beat Latino goes to the Dominican Republic to share the sounds of the 19th Dominican Republic Jazz Fest! What an amazing musical adventure to hear jazz greats from that land and others, swaying to the beautiful breezes of arguably some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Along the way, we had a chance to chat with jazz maestro Marco Pignataro about how music and jazz in particular, can transform the world Enjoy! Feature photo: David Sanchez.
