Pre-concert Conversation, 7 pm: Hip Harp
Series producer Bruce Eaton explores the work of pioneer jazz harpists Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane.
Edmar Castaneda, a native of Colombia, is an unparalleled virtuoso on the harp, recognized around the world for his stunning blend of jazz and the folk music of South America. With his boundless imagination and spellbinding rhythmic dexterity, Castaneda’s performances beg for the clichéd description that “he must be seen to believed.” With his longstanding trio featuring Marshall Gilkes (trombone) and Dave Silliman (drums / percussion) generating a joyous cascade of lush colors and dynamic spirit, Castaneda “connects with a crowd wherever he goes thanks to his commanding presence and fast fingers” (Wall Street Journal). His first Buffalo concert promises to be a stunning finish to this season’s Art of Jazz series. Learn more at www.edmarcastaneda.com.
