Jazz is the music of liberation, resistance to injustice, romance and adventure, sometimes of conflict. His true identity has always been double rather than single. Around the same time that early jazz thrilled audiences, readers were gasping for the adventures of a masked man named Zorro who had been remembered by the darkness of oppression to put things right, leaving each time his hallmark on the wall.

Zorro is a fabulous suite in which great cinematic themes, romantic interludes, wide landscapes and breathtaking pursuits are placed.
