Show Details - November 2011
Susana Abreu & Terra is a new collaboration between some of Vancouver's finest jazz and Latin musicians. Collectively with over 100 years of professional performing experience, Susana Abreu & Terra is already garnering critical and popular acclaim, with sold-out performances at the Jazz Cellar in Vancouver and the beautiful Silk Purse Gallery on West Vancouver's Ambleside Beach. Susana Abreu & Terra is comprised of sensational v...ocalist and percussionist Susana Abreu, a veteran performer in the Vancouver's Latin Scene with her critically acclaimed CD 'Latin Roots'. Joining her is her long-time accompanist André Carrasquero, a pianist, guitarist, arranger, & composer originally from Caracas, Venezuela. André was most recently the driving force behind the latin jazz group 'Zapato Negro', and their 'Live at the Cellar Jazz' cd was nominated for an outstanding Jazz Recording by the West Coast Music Awards. On percussion, Terra features the great Jack Duncan, a mainstay on the Latin and Jazz scenes in Vancouver. Jack has studied congas and percussion with some of the finest teachers in the world, travelling throughout Central and South America, Africa, and the Carribean. Jack never ceases to amaze audience with his deep grooves, stunning solos, and incredible musical virtuosity and refinement. Bassist Cameron Hood rounds off the quartet, on six string fretted and fretless electric basses. A performer since the age of 12 with his mother's family band, Cameron has performed in every possible genre imaginable, including blues and classic rock bands, latin, jazz, big bands, African World music bands, and now brings his own unique voice on expanded-range basses to Terra. Terra plays a unique fusion of Latin jazz, salsa, bossa-nova, CUMBIA, and bop with virtuosity, intensity, dramatic flair, extreme sensitivity, depth and beauty. They WILL amaze you.
Good For Grapes formed in September of 2010, after a group of friends took a trip to Victoria, BC for some modest busking. Since that first journey stepped on the ferry, they became an attraction. Drawing unexpected crowds. Naturally this young and aspiring band took form; an original and talented five piece group, with an array of harmonizing voices and instruments. Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, this folk / alternative act has been gaining momentum ever since they stepped into the music scene. Their live stage performance in this time has evolved into an incredibly active, folk stomping, occasion that leaves no audience member in their seat.
