Yosvany Terry / Baptiste Trotignon Ancestral Memories Quartet
Sat, Oct 3, 2015, 1:00pm – 2:30pm
With Ancestral Memories the captivating New York-based Cuban alto saxophonist Yosvany Terry and French pianist Baptiste Trotignon have designed an unprecedented suite inspired by the rich and diverse musical traditions that emerged from the African Diaspora in the United States and former French colonies in the Caribbean. Featuring Terry’s longtime rhythm section with bassist Yunior Terry and powerhouse drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts, Ancestral Memories captures the sultry rhythms, cadences and melodies of the Caribbean, New Orleans and French Louisiana, re‐imagined through a 21st century jazz sensibility. The suite was created with grant support from the French‐American Jazz Exchange Program.
