EL ECO with Guillermo Nojechowicz - the Brazilian-Argentine jazz ensemble that has been called by writer Bob Blumenthal “the seedbed” of much of the Latin jazz scene in the Northeast (USA) - is now getting national attention following its broadcast performance on National Public Radio's “Jazz Set” with host vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater (Grammy Award). Last year receiving standing ovations in Boston at Scullers, the band performed with trumpeter Avishai Cohen and Cuban pianist Osmany Paredes. Other performances have included the Curacao International Jazz Festival in the Netherland Antilles and the Telluride Jazz Celebration in Telluride, Colorado, with guest Airto Moreira. The Telluride line-up included Herbie Hancock and Terence Blanchard, among others.
