Brooklyn Jazz Festival Presents: Carlo DeRosa’s Crossfade + Greg Diamon Quartet
Oct 10, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm| Free
Brooklyn Jazz Festival presents:
Carlo DeRosa’s Crossfade
Cross-Fade is a band of top-drawer musicians featuring: MARK SHIM on Saxophone, DAVID GILMORE on Guitar, KUSH ABADEY on Drums and composer/bandleader CARLO DE ROSA on Bass. Drawing upon his varied experiences, De Rosa’s darkly – hued compositions strike a delicate balance between freedom and form, reflecting an affinity for fluctuating dynamics and asymmetrical grooves. However, even when Cross-Fade is really pushing the envelope, this is music with a remarkably wide appeal.
“I liked what I heard, Great writing and ensemble playing. Deep, thoughtful solos.” – Jack DeJohnette
Greg Diamond Quartet
Brooklyn guitarist Greg Diamond has been an emerging force in recent years and is now situated at the forefront of a new generation of contemporary latin jazz artists in New York City. Greg and his band have been seen performing at venues such as: The Blue Note, Iridium Jazz Club, Joe’s Pub, Smalls Jazz Club, Nublu, and Zinc Bar; not to mention numerous festival presentations, among them: The Madrid International Jazz Festival, Barranquijazz Festival, Jimmy Glass Jazz Festival, Teatro Libre Jazz Festival, Jazz al Parque Festival, and the Nublu Jazz Festival.
