Chinchano is Juan Pastor's modern instrumental jazz group that fuses the traditional North American jazz harmonic palette with exciting rhythmic concepts drawn from Central and South America. This distinct sonic brand is revealed through not only the original compositions, but also in the unique drums/percussion setup that Juan brings to both the recording and to the live concerts

Drummer and percussionist Juan Pastor's fourth and latest release, Cachito, shines in its maturity and emotional depth. The album highlights not only Pastor's unique artistic voice and compositional prowess, but also the musicianship of his collaborators, including core bandmates Dustin Laurenzi, Stu Mindeman, and Matt Ulery, as well as several additional special guests. Dedicated to Pastor's late father Carlos, the album is an exploration of grief and loss, of acceptance, of steadfast courage.
