From official press release:
Acclaimed for his
remarkable stylistic diversity, the award-winning trumpeter and composer
Ali is perhaps best known in the international
arena for his Afro-Cuban excellence after several headlining performances
at the Havana Jazz Fest in recent years with his energized latin-jazz outfit
CRUZAO's heavily Cuban peppered sets. But for this special 3-concert
series, for which he will play EXCLUSIVELY flugelhorn,
he will dip into his deep knowledge of Brazilian music mounting a tri-weekly
series featuring three of Canada's most recognized female world-music vocalists
all performing strictly Brazilian repertoire - Venezuelan world music diva
Cuevas, sultry Brazilian songstress Aline
Morales & urban music queen Janelle
Brownman has long-time
deep affiliatons with each of these vocalists and states "I'm
really excited about this series. A chance to work with 3 of my friends
who happen to be some of country's most refined vocal entities and explore
the depths of Brazil together musically? Man, this'll be something
to be remembered for sure!". When asked
about why the use exclusively flugelhorn he says, "the
flugelhorn has been a defining sound in Brazilian-jazz for a long time.
I had the honour of studying with Claudio Roditi, one of Brazil's most
renowed flugelhornists, when I lived in New York City and that buttery,
rich, warm sound is what I hear when I think of Brazilian-jazz"
The concept for such
a series was borne from performing at last year's Havana Jazz Festival
with Brazilian vocal legend Ivan Linns,
who has asked Brownman to appear on an upcoming recording. Couple
that with his recent exploits with Brazilian-jazz ensemble PERMUTACOES
who, in July, dazzled the Mod Club with their powerful sounds during Jazz
By Genre's Brazilian/Latin Night and his current Brazilian love affair
Witness what Brownman
and these staggering vocal talents can do with Brazilian music first hand
