Professor Gene Marlow's Heritage Ensemble Performs
PHENOMENAL! Down right tasty!!"
That's how John Ford of KAOS-FM radio in Olympia, Washington
describes Marlow's Heritage Ensemble.
The jazz quintet is devoted to the concert performance of beloved Hebraic liturgical and folk song melodies. At each performance they will perform several arrangements from their inaugural CD "Making the Music Our Own" (available at cdbaby.com).
Marlow's Heritage Ensemble performance uniquely blends bossa nova, Afro-Cuban, swing, and blues styles with these traditional Jewish melodies.
Jazz fans of all faiths will enjoy Marlow's Heritage Ensemble. As Pascal Dorban, Radio ARA, Luxembourg attests: "Those traditional Jewish tunes are well arranged and even seem to have been fitted for jazz in the first place."
Marlow's Heritage Ensemble features award-winning performers: Eugene Marlow (founder/pianist), Michael Hashim (saxophones), Frank Wagner (bass), Cristian Riveria (percussion), and world-renowned, multi-Grammy-nominated drummer Bobby Sanabria who will join the group
as a special guest artist for all performances listed below.
