Experience the excitement of Afro-Cuban Jazz with Grupo Jazz Tumbao, a septet dedicated to the performance of original Latin Jazz, Bebop latin-style, and classic compositions from the masters of Cuban and Nuyorican Jazz. If you've ever heard the young tenor giant David Sánchez, or Jerry Gonzalez and Fort Apache, you'll know where Grupo Jazz Tumbao is coming from. Of course, they can't forget the Dizzy Gillespie - Chano Pozo experiments of the 1940's that originally defined this great style. Grupo Jazz Tumbao seems to be one of the few groups west of New York playing with this perspective. It's members are all accomplished musicians on the Jazz and Latin music scenes in Vancouver, and have travelled and studied extensively to perfect their craft. For the past few years, the band has performed to enthusiastic audiences at Vancouver's International Jazz Festival, where they have opened for Cuba's legendary Orquesta Aragón, and Eliades Ochoa of Buena Vista Social Club Fame.
