Amazing gig at Paris cat tonight for the new Latin Project ensemble with ClaveMania.
This is a new direction in music for me. I wanted to create a local ensemble that could play my original compositions in the style I recorded in Cuba.
The newly formed group “ClaveMania” had just the line up I needed to do this.
A collaboration between myself and pianist Jonathon Cohen meant the concert would have a broad range of compositions.
I was delighted to assist in helping some of latin musician friends get their first jazz club performance.
I will never forget what a wonderful night it turned out to be. A full house set the stage for an electric atmosphere. It brought back some memories if recording in Cuba 🙂
Paul Van Ross – saxophones / flute
Jonathan Cohen – piano
Elizabeth Obando – bass
Rodolfo “Panga” Hechavarria – percussion
Damien Ellis – drum set
Thanks for all your support.
Next gig @ Paris Cat May 23rd.
