Marea Alta - Live in Buckhead

March 26th, 2007 by hbh

Live In Buckhead  On Friday, March 3, 2006 Marea Alta performed at Sambuca Restaurant (Buckhead, Atlanta).  On this occasion, the group shared the stage with a special guest, Universal Music and Jazz guitar recording artist Leo Quintero.  A portion of the Marea Alta show with Leo was recorded and a CD will be released sometime in August of 2007 featuring some of the musical material from this performance.  The CD will be titled “Marea Alta: Live in Buckhead”, presenting premium sax player Nick Longo, Latin percussionist Jose De La Cruz, keyboardist J. Santiago Núñez (Marea Alta’s musical director) and Leo Quintero on guitar.  Billy Wilkie, the formal guitar player of Marea Alta is also featured on some of the tracks.  The CD contains 13 original tracks composed and arranged by Marea Alta’s musical director. 

        One of the songs of this live CD (“Cool Jam”) was already selected by the network of PBS in Australia to be included on a CD containing a musical collection called “A Latin Point of View: Vol. III”.  This is the second time the Australian network of PBS has chosen Marea Alta among a catalog of international Jazz artists to be included within this additional special edition depicting Latin Jazz music around the world.  This theme has been included on the broadcast of Fiesta Jazz (a highly popular radio program of Jazz fusion and Latin Jazz produced and presented by Saúl Zavarce) within the regular programming of PBS-FM 106.7MHz in Melbourne, Australia.
