Spring is in the air! What better way to spend Thursday nights in the preamble to the balmy, Brighton summer evenings than with Latin Jazz vibes? Brighton lounge Bar Cubar, a stone’s throw from the beach and serving up a mahoosive range of cocktails, spirits, wines n beers will be hosting weekly Latin Jazz nights with myself on guitar and a special guest each week showcasing the local talent Brighton has to offer.
First up is Tony Shepherd, percussionist supreme on a vast array of percussion instruments including cajon, shakers, bongos, cow bells n loads more. Together, we will be exploring the beautiful, rich music of South America taking you on a musical journey from the Samba, Choro & Bossa Nova of Brazil to the folk music of Argentina and the waltzes of Venezuela. Maybe just one or two jazz standards thrown in perhaps.
Inspired by my guitar heroes Baden Powell de Aquino, Raphael Rabello & Yamandu Costa, I’ll be playing classical guitar but spiced up with deep Latin grooves and extended improvisations. Chord melody guitar intertwined with the sumptuous percussive beats.
So it all kicks off Thurs 13th March, 8.30pm til late, Cubar, Preston St, Brighton. Free entry! Other musicians are most welcome to come and join in the fun 🙂
