El Eco

EL ECO with Guillermo Nojechowicz -- the Brazilian-Argentine jazz ensemble that has been called “the seedbed” of much of the Latin jazz scene in the Northeast (US)-- performed live on NPR's “Jazz Set” with host vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater earlier this year. The Brazilian Argentinean jazz ensemble, based in Boston and New York City, offers true world music at its best. Their material is strikingly original, delivered with strong vocals, percussive drive, and real lyric focus.

Their upcoming SCULLER'S peformance will feature Grammy Award vocalist Kim Nazarian. EL ECO combines the warm and lustrous sounds of samba and candombe with the tighter lines of bebop and straight-ahead jazz, darkened by echoes of Piazolla. A drummer, Nojechowicz writes from the beat, delivering a complex mix of Cuban, Afro-Cuban, Bossa Nova,and Funk rhythms.
