Part 1 - BOUNDARIES CREATE FREEDOM by Julian Escobar

Julian Escobar is a versatile Colombian drummer and composer who began his musical journey at the age of five. His passion for jazz was ignited by his mentor in Colombia, German Sandoval, sparking a deep curiosity for improvised music. Influenced by jazz legends such as Jack Dejohnette, Dave Weckl, Mark Guiliana, and Steve Gadd, Escobar's exploration expanded to include drummers from earlier generations like Philly Joe Jones, Kenny Clarke, Max Roach, Elvin Jones, and Roy Haynes. One pivotal album that solidified Escobar's love for jazz is "Out of the Afternoon" by Roy Haynes. These influences inspired him to delve into straight-ahead jazz, where he crafted his own compositions, blending personal flair with the tradition of jazz standards
