AFRO-CARIBBEAN EXPERIMENTAL TRIO The Afro-Caribbean Experimental Trio [ACE] is a concept created by saxophonist/arranger/ composer Jorge Sylvester combining three textures within the Afro-Caribbean idiom. The compositions and arrangements are written specifically for saxophone, electric bass and drums. The other members of the trio are drummer/percussionist Bobby Sanabria and bassist Donald Nicks. ACE utilizes the rich spectrum of rhythms from the Caribbean and other Latin American countries as a vehicle to create new and undiscovered rhythmic-melodic lines.
