LATIN ENSEMBLE CONCERT
directed by Mario Caribé
featuring Year 3 BMus Jazz Students
& special guest Steve Forman
Students on the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s internationally acclaimed jazz course explore the Latin American music that has created a popular fusion with jazz over the past seventy years in a concert for the head, heart and feet.
With recordings such as saxophonist Stan Getz’s bossa nova classic with Brazilian guitarist João Gilberto and through musicians and composers including Antonio Carlos Jobim, Hermeto Pascoal and Oscar Hernández, the rhythms of Brazil and the Afro-Caribbean traditions have become integral parts of the jazz melting pot.
Under the guidance of bass tutor and respected bandleader Mario Caribe, the Conservatoire’s Latin Ensemble plays arrangements that honour these traditions while taking Bossa Nova, Cha-cha-chá, Baião, Mambo, and Bolero forward with melodic creativity and jazz harmony into a thoroughly satisfying and exciting meeting of the old and the new, the authentic and the original.
Joined by Los Angeles session veteran and course teacher Steve Forman, whose sublime percussive talents and tirelessly researched knowledge of rhythms have enhanced innumerable artists’ recordings, from Sergio Mendez to Pink Floyd, the RCS Latin Ensemble promises percussive fireworks, irresistible grooves and instantly memorable melodies.
