Alex Acuña featuring Jan Gunner Hoff and Per Mathisen
Percussion - Drum DVD
Voted the best Latin/Brazilian percussionist in Modern Drummer magazine's Readers Poll for five consecutive years, Alex Acuna has a vast knowledge and expertise of percussion rhythms. His South American and Caribbean roots, combined with his understanding of contemporary and classical music, make him a complete and skilled master musician, one of the most sought after of our time. Best known for his work with artists such as Elvis Presley, Diana Ross, and the band Weather Report, he is a player that exhibits innovation, energy, and pure heart. Flanked by two world-renowned music luminaries, keyboardist Jan Gunner Hoff and guitarist Per Mathisen, Acuna has assembled a world class performing trio that will captivate you with the high quality sounds, colors, and textures they orchestrate. This DVD comes with a bonus CD.
"Together, they create inspired contemporary improvised instrumental music that is reminiscent of the music of Weather Report, the Keith Jarrett Trio, and other European jazz artists of the past 20 years on the ECM record label."
