Edmar Castenada @ Jazz Standard 8/23/11

I never get sick of this trio.  The trombone blew me away.  I loved all of them.  Some of the old songs, some new songs.  It was awesome.  The drum/percussion setup is awesome.  He's great.  Andrea came out and sang for the last 3 songs.

Edmar Castaneda – Colombian Harp
Andrea Tierra – vocals
Marshall Gilkes – trombone
David Silliman – drums, percussion

“A jazz harpist of imposing talent” (The New York Times), Edmar Castaneda transforms the unique and beautiful sound of the Colombian harp with his commanding technique and ingenious improvisations. Edmar has performed and recorded with Paquito D'Rivera, John Scofield, Trio De Paz, Lila Downs, and Chico O'Farrill’s Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra. Paquito D’Rivera calls Edmar Castaneda “an enormous talent” and “one of the most original musicians living in the Big Apple” – don’t miss his trio, with special guest vocalist Andrea Tierra, as they record live at Jazz Standard for future CD release!
