Corina Bartra's New Trends Orquestra celebrates the CD release of "Uniting Beats," May 10
The show will celebrate the release of a new CD, "Uniting Beats," featuring Todd Anderson, Eric Nevelov, Charles Lee, Amaris Dunkel, Jonathan Saraga, Cody Rowlands, Steve Sanders, Dan
Martinez, Fernando Garcia, and Erico Diaz.
Ever on the lookout for new ways to express her musical ideal, Corina Bartra has now turned to the big band sound to articulate her spacious musical vision. Marrying the exquisite rhythms of Afro‐Peruvian jazz with the equally exquisite rhythms of Afro‐American jazz,Corina as always has teamed with the best musicians around and the results are a delicious blur of boundaries and modalities.
"This fervent music swings with the joy of musical collaboration and creation. Voices shout and chant in the background, and the rambunctious horns celebrate life lived to the fullest. She also reaches out for new rhythms, like Brazilian, reggae ("More Than You Can Afford") and Cuban ("Moliendo Cafe," Guajira Son"). Savor!" ‐MARK FOGARTY.
