GREGOR HUEBNER EL VIOLIN LATINO Quartet

Tuesday, June 21
8pm to 10:30pm
The idea to this series already developed some time ago in a café in New York during a session. Mappy Torres, a Cuban poet, described the “Latin Violin“ with words, Gregor Huebner described it with his music. To him the violin is the common denominator of different genres. Of course his personal style slips in the compositions, too. He was heavily influenced by Eastern European Folk and Gypsy music. The result is a line-up of compositions of the most important Latin American composers and his own works written in the same unmistakable style.

For Gregor Huebner, the influence of Eastern European music is clearly audible in the music of South America. He feels comfortable here. Here he is at home.

Huebner´s recipe for success is: “Absorb everything you experience, and then concentrate on the things that interest you. But never deny where you came from.” Thus his own roots and personal experiences play a central role in his music and in his playing.

Gregor Huebner put together a band specifically for his concerts because going on tour with three different bands goes beyond the scope of practicability. Klaus Mueller (piano), Itaiguara Brandau on bass and Jerome Goldschmidt (percussion) accompany Gregor Huebner (violin) during live performances in small clubs, concert halls or at festivals.

The Evolution Jam Session presented by Revive Music

The Evolution Jam Session at Zinc Bar
Tuesday, June 21
11:00 until late $10 Cover $5 for participating musicians

Innovation. Exploration. Competition. Revolution. The Evolution Jam Session.
 
The jam session is the lowest common denominator for any group of artists. One, maybe two words are exchanged. A melody line is plucked out on a piano. Musicians and artists of all kinds clamor to get on stage with their idols and peers. And now, in the style made prominent in the clubs of Harlem with the likes of Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, and Dizzy Gillespie, the culture will live on at Zinc Bar every Tuesday at 11:30PM. Come out and experience the mentorship, competition, collaboration, and best of all: the never before heard unique musical enterprises that come of improvisation and innovation. From the most famous musicians, singers, tap dancers to the emerging generation of artists, we invite you to come and experience one of the most essential tools in furthering this generation of music and artistry.
