Jorge Emilio Maza played sax and flute for both Charanga Habanera and Charanga Forever, and was also musical director of La Forever for a period of time..

Maza, a founding member of Charanga Habanera stayed witht the group for ten years, from 1988 to 1998. He didn't stay for very long with La Forever and is currently playing with Jesús Alemany's "Cubanismo" with such musicians as Efraín Ríos, Roberto Riverón, Carlos Alvarez, "El Panga", "Peruchín", etc.

I understand he was a member of the Banda Nacional de Conciertos after finishing his studies, but I'm not sure if he attended the ENA or Amadeo Roldán.

I last saw him a year and a half ago in Havana, where he was recorded with Cubanismo on an album that featured Tata Gúines as a guest artist. [Majela Serrano]

A few years ago Maza moved to Canada where he performs with his group Toronto Típica. [Michelle White]
