Primavera Latin Jazz Band

Primavera Latin Jazz Band's live performances include Latin jazz standards influenced by Afro-Cuban musical traditions. two of which are: Tito Puente’s “Philadelphia Mambo and Cal Tjader’s “Leyte”. Included in the album, 'Tocando Juntos', are fresh interpretations of Latin songs that were first introduced to American audiences by the great band leaders of the 30s and 40s: “Caravan”, popularized by Duke Ellington and “Frenesi”, popularized by the Artie Shaw Orchestra. The band’s heart-felt rendition of the Latin standard “Besame Mucho” features vocalist Ana Nitmar. Listen to Jane Lenoir’s haunting flute solo on “Sea Journey”.

Primavera also pays homage to the great jazz bands of the 60s and 70s with engaging performances of Latin-influenced jazz tunes including Chick Corea’s “Sea Journey”, Horace Silver’s “Song for My Father”, Joe Henderson’s “Recorda-Me”, and “Recado Bossa Nova”, which was first recorded by Hank Mobley. This album also includes two jazz standards that the band performs with a Latin flavor: Cole Porter’s “Night and Day” and Charlie Parker’s “My Little Suede Shoes”. The band is exploring jazz arrangements of Musica Popular Brasiliera (MPB), Brazilian popular music, and includes Tom Jobim’s “Brigas Nunca Mais.".
