The Collective will be playing music from the upcoming CD "Spirit Driven".
The ACE [A fro-Caribbean Experimental] Collective is a group of improvising
musicians created and led by saxophonist/composer/arranger Jorge Sylvester.
An extension of the ACE Trio (alto saxophone, electric bass and drums), the ACE Collective includes three additional independent rhythmic and melodic elements; the voice, trumpet and piano expanding its harmonic colors, its scope of sound and its textural capacity.
The music is original and draws from the Afro - Caribbean Diaspora, jazz and the free music art forms.
This new edition of the collective is a very unique one, because every musician brings his "own"sound to the table, and therefore transforming the musical process in to a "new sound". Nora's raw voice, her spirited poetry, lyrics, composition and delivery of the word is one of a kind, and transform my compositions lines in to an angelic sound. Waldron's sound and harmonic conception on the trumpet represents the color shifting in my arrangements. Pablo Vergara impressionistic voicing on the piano create the "Magic" behind the sound.
Donald Nicks on the bass represents the soul of the compositions, and Kenny Grohowski orchestration of the written drum parts makes the magic swing in any type of meter, be it 5/4 or 9/4.
Looking Forward !!
