Event Description:
"I always love listening to Eugene's compositions; they make so much musical sense and bring you on a journey with a very healing, uplifting feel." - Jerry Bergonzi After spending several years in Colombia, South America, Eugene Uman found a niche blending the rhythms of Colombia such as cumbia, bambuco and pasillo with jazz harmonies. Uman continued to investigate the rhythms and forms of the music of his newly adopted homeland, internalizing a small handful of the immense and richly varied catalog of Colombian rhythms. Uman continues to visit Latin America; his relationship to Colombia, its people, highly developed art and music will never be shaken. Still, his focus (and the repertoire of the Convergence Project) has morphed into a personalized amalgam of jazz-influenced styles. It continues to reference Colombian rhythms but has evolved to give a greater voice to Uman's love of vocal jazz, bebop, rock, gospel and funk roots. He states: "The music that I compose is a reflection of my accumulated experiences. It is affected by what I am currently paying attention to but is also strongly influenced by the listening and performing experiences of my formative years in rock, jazz, classical contexts." Each member of the Convergence Project brings their own highly developed personal approaches to Uman's music, uplifting it with original lines, hard driving grooves, attention to dynamics, acute listening skills and a group commitment to giving the music shape and substance. Eugene Uman, piano, composition, Wanda Houston, voice, Jeff Galindo, Trombone, Joshua Bruneau, trumpet, Michael Zsoldos, saxophones, David Picchi, bass, Jon Fisher, drums.
