About the Album

In "Mitos del Sur", the innovative trio co-led by guitarist Nicolás Vera, pianist Leo Genovese and drummer Félix Lecaros, subscribed to the idea that avant-garde music does not need to be abrasive, iconoclastic or frenetic. In fact, it can be even beautiful. Nothing satisfies like a well executed musical performance and, throughout this excursion, the trio creates with taste and style. Vera and Genovese alternate in assuming the prominence that traditionally belongs to the pianist. However, there is a lot of room for everyone to express themselves at the time, both in accompaniment and alone. A series of short improvisations by the percussionist Lecaros in duets with Genovese or Vera fit perfectly into the sequence of the tracks, with vivid contrasts in density, which add a layer of drama. Recorded on january 2017 in Santiago de Chile. Available on Aconcagua Records www.aconcaguarecords.com, vinyl and digital

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
