Primary Instrument: Band/orchestra

“Insight” has a new beginning. After six years of working together around the world, they have grown to learn that the world is in desperate need of a wake-up call. “Insight” will try to be that alarm.

As with all American music, their concept is African-based with influences from Puerto Rico, Cuba, South and Central America, Europe and Asia. The result has a profound impact on the listeners allowing them to experience a powerful new interpretation of musical expression and communication.

While the members of “Insight” collectively produce a sound that is fresh, individually, they are or have been side-men for some of the greatest musicians alive such as Herbie Hancock, Eddie Palmieri, Jimmy Greene, David Valentin, Ralph Peterson, Brian Lynch, Gary Burton, and Donald Harrison. Each member brings his own experiences to the table to contribute to the collective grooves, melodies, and compositions of this ensemble.

”Artist-in-residence Eddie Palmieri is in the audience... He is a huge influence on Insight, the Latin Jazz ensemble. After their set, the master was all smiles, saying, 'Give them another two years, and Insight will blow any band off the stage!'” NPR.org, February 2005

“Co-led by Zaccai and Luques Curtis, on piano and bass respectively, the group exhibited one of the most exciting sounds on the scene today, distinguished by tightly-played serpentine arrangements that melded memorable melodies, sophisticated harmonies and a dazzling array of AfroCarribean rhythms.” -Russ Musto (All About Jazz)
