From now on it is also possible to book the Cuban Superstar Alfredo Rodriguez with his Trio in the German speaking countries by us. Grammy®-nominated artist Alfredo Rodriguez has been discovered at the 2006 Montreux Jazz Festival by Quincy Jones. His mastery of the art has earned him frequent appearances on prestigious stages around the world such as the Playboy Jazz Festival at the Hollywood Bowl, Montreux Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival, Jazz in Marciac, Umbria Jazz, and Jazz à Vienne. Additionally, Rodríguez was nominated for a 2015 Grammy® in the category of “Best Arrangement, Instrumental, or A Cappella,” for the track “Guantanamera,” from his 2014 release, The Invasion Parade.
Cuban saxophon player starts his collaboration with Concertbüro Uli Fild.
During the last years the Spanish capital Madrid has developed as the center of European jazz.
One important reason has been the immigration of musicians from Latin America – specially from Cuba. Ariel Bringuez is one of them who brings the Cuban music tradition to Europe and creats a new mixture with European Jazz musicians.
The actual jazz scene of Madrid is one of most vitalized scene in Europe at the moment.
One of the most creative musician is bass player Pablo Martín Caminero who worked long time in the band of Flamenco legend Gerardo Nuñez.
During the last 10 years Pablo started to concentrate himself more on his own career. In the meantime he is leader of a trio and a quintet which includes musicians from the Spanish – Cuban scene in Madrid. We are glad to welcome Pablo in our office now.

I did record at the Vanguard a few weeks ago with Andrew Cyrille, Thomas Morgan and Mark Turner. This will come out on ECM at some point. Also, I just recorded a septet with Joe Lovano, Larry Grenadier, Thomas Morgan, Anders Christensen, Joey Baron and Jorge Rossy. Release date yet to be scheduled with ECM but it’s coming out at some point too. When it does, I’d like to present this band too in Europe.
Antonio Lizana – flamenco Jazz musicians from Cadiz – is actually also working besides his Quintet Oriente with a Trio. This new Trio is formed by Antonio Lizana sax/vocal, guitar player Manuel León, and Adrián Trujillo on percussion. The band can be booked in Germany, Austria and Switzerland by our agency.
