Christian de Mesones is the bassist and founder of Groove Skool Band and Big New York & the Smooth Jazz All-Starz. He has also released two singles independently: “Good Old Days” in 2015, and “Latin Jive Redux” in 2017. Latin Jive Redux, a remix of the Groove Skool song, “Latin Jive”, went to number 55 on Billboard and number 1 in the UK. It has remained in the top 10 for over a year on both The Moth FM/UK and 96.8 The Oasis in the USA. The November 2018 release of “Spirit” is his third independent single release.
Today, with Big New York & the Smooth Jazz All-Starz”, Christian continues to wow audiences with his personal vision. When asked to explain that vision, he said, “Everyone gets a spotlight in this band. I like to create excitement sonically, and that means mixing it up so the listening audience can get it’s money’s worth.”
