The Sunday Jazz Brunch Presents

Gabriel Espinosa: From Yucatán to Tarrytown

Air Date: 7/7/2024 on 90.5 WICN 8am-12pm ET

I'm impressed with the lineup of artists appearing at Mark Morganelli's Jazz Forum in Tarrytown, New York. Recently Gabriel Espinosa performed with his superb band. In the photo above, we see Mr. Espinosa feeling the bass, with drummer Graciliano Zambonin reacting to the groove of the moment.

Also featured in the group was the very talented Misha Tsiganov on piano, as well as Aviana Gedler vocals and violin, and Alexandra Ridout trumpet and flugelhorn.

Not only was the music simply great to listen and groove to, but Mr. Espinosa's talk about the songs made it very interesting. There was music from Brazil, as well as music from Mr. Espinosa's home, Yucatán Mexico. In addition, we heard a Cuban Bolero, a Spanish folk tune, and even a Latin version of the Carpenters' Close to You.

There is nothing like immersing yourself in a live jazz show. Sure, music on the radio is great, especially on Sunday mornings! 😀 But when you attend a live show, there is an interaction that occurs that cannot be duplicated. 

In this case, the interaction was all about love - love of the music, love of different parts of the world, love of art, love of the artists, and love of what the artists give us when they perform. 

On the next edition of the Sunday Jazz Brunch, during Brazil/World jazz hour, you'll hear a song from Mr. Espinosa's latest release, as well as a song from Mr. Zambonin's release from a few years back.

I hope your summer is going well!
