Mariah Parker’s Indo Latin Jazz Ensemble “fuses Latin rhythms with influences from South America and India with a dash of straight-up American jazz… an intoxicating blend of East and West performed by musicians of astounding virtuosity. Like all the best jazz bands, this group is as disciplined as it is innovative, stopping on a dime when the composition calls for it and soaring into gorgeous landscapes of free association the next moment that are as pleasing as they are adventurous.” — Paul Liberatore, Marin Independent Journal
Mariah’s ensemble includes: Paul McCandless, Grammy Award-winning woodwind virtuoso and co-founder of the world fusion ensembles Oregon and Paul Winter Consort; Matthew Montfort, founder and leader of the world fusion ensemble Ancient Future and pioneer of the scalloped fretboard guitar; Kash Killion, bassist with the Sun Ra Arkestra, cellist and performer on African and Indian string instruments; Ian Dogole, world percussionist, bandleader and collaborator with Ancient Future and Hamza el Din.
This concert celebrates the release of “Indo Latin Jazz: Live in Concert,” a recording project taken from shows at Yoshi’s, Freight & Salvage, the Throckmorton Theatre, and TRI Studios over a seven year period.
