I’m really glad to be a member of one of the hottest Latin Ensembles in New York, the Gregorio Uribe Big Band.
I have been playing with this group since its beginnings in Boston for over 4 years now, when singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, composer/arranger, showman, entrepreneur and band-leader Gregorio Uribe had the great idea of creating a different music project; a big band that would have the drive like the famous Jazz and Latin orchestras from the Golden Era of Swing, but with a modern twist.
The band features some of the most amazing musicians in the New York scene, professionals who are as well on tour with the likes of Marcus Miller, Harry Connick Jr, Richard Bona and Saturday Night Live Band, to name a few. Gregorio’s unlimited talent has brought the band to stages such as Iridium Jazz Club, Zinc Bar, Fat Cat, Salem Jazz Festival, Encounter of Colombian Musicians in New York, and in Television appearances such as Univision and CNN.
I constantly learn from Gregorio’s wisdom as a band-leader, musician and as a friend as well. I look forward to the bright future that this band has ahead!
Gregorio Uribe Big Band has a residency show the first Thursday of every month at famous jazz club Zinc Bar.
