Classical and Popular Music in Young Cuban Jazz Musician

jazz-at-lincoln-center-orchestra[1]Havana, Feb 27.- The young Cuban trumpeter Tonatiut Isidrón said today the confluence between classical and popular music will characterize his concert next March in this capital. Isidrón told Prensa Latina that his inspiration came to him from various parts anytime, and is always ready to catch the catch the melody in the act, to shape it later.

That creative spirit let him earn a JoJazz prize in 2007 and be called by greats of Cuban music, such as Omara Portuondo or teacher Joaquin Betancourt, who added him to his great jazz band.

In his concetn on next March 12 at the Havana Fine Arts Museum, he plans to merge traditional instruments of music with those typical of popular genres, an original “ensemble”.

Thus the tuba and trombone coexist with trumpet, trombone and saxophone, in a formation composed by Gastón Joya as bassist and drummer Rodney Barreto, among others. (Prensa Latina).
