Corina Bartra's New Trends Orquestra celebrates the CD release of "Uniting Beats," May 10

Help us welcome back Afro-Peruvian musician Corina Bartra with her New Trends Orquestra to Jazz Tuesdays in the John Birks Gillespie Auditorium in the NYC Baha'i Center at 53 East 11th Street on Tuesday, May 10. Come by and hear some lando, chachacha, marinera, patido alto, samba, rebalosa, festejo, bossa, and swing!  There will be 2 shows at 8:00 and 9:30 pm.  Please call 212-222-5159 for information and reservations.

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.
