Week Seven: Fusions: Latin Jazz, Third Stream, and Jazz-Rock Fusion

From its very beginnings, Jazz was always a fusion of musical styles. Latin Jazz emerged, fusing Jazz vocabulary with Afro-Cuban musical traditions. Third Stream sought to marry Jazz and Classical music, while Fusion looked to the burgeoning rock scene for inspiration.

The Swing Collective

The Swing Collective is a new quintet of enormously talented young musicians representing five countries of origin: Chilean tenor saxophonist and Thelonious Monk Competition winner Melissa Aldana, Trinidadian trumpeter Etienne Charles, Cuban pianist Elio Villafranca, Japanese bassist Yasushi Nakamura, and Ulysses Owens, Jr. of Jacksonville, Florida. To witness these artists on a single stage is an exciting prospect, but tonight’s performance will be particularly special as they each debut new works composed specifically for this occasion.
