Federico Britos

There is no greater proof of the universality of jazz and classical music than that which embodies the career and life work of Federico Britos. This titan of the violin, who is as equally adept within the world of jazz music as he is in the classical realm, has built a solid reputation throughout the Southern Hemisphere of the Americas. Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Federico began playing violin at age five. George Boulanger, Rumanian violinist, while touring in Uruguay, premiered one of his musical pieces "Capricho Uruguayo"; Federico was eleven years old at that moment. He had the opportunity to meet and perform for David Oistracht and Jasha Heifetz at his teacher's home, Adolph Bornstein

Markus Gottschlich: Of Places Between

Read "Of Places Between" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Pianist Markus Gottschlich is anything but a traditionalist, yet tradition, or more accurately, traditions, play a major role in his music; he doesn't believe that a single tradition must be addressed in isolation. In Gottschlich's world, songo and samba can meet and marry ("Invitation"), Billy Strayhorn's music can stray a bit, taking a detour to Jamaica ...

Negroni's Trio: On The Way

Read "On The Way" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Pianist José Negroni and his son, drummer Nomar Negroni, showcase their cross-genre versatility on On The Way--its unifying theme, a mélange of European melodic motifs and Latin romanticism, giving cohesion to this, their seventh release. “Matices" opens with José Negroni's harp-like flowing lines, dramatically echoing in the silent pauses.

Federico Britos: Voyage

Read "Voyage" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

The world continues to awake to the rising tide of undiscovered music and musicians from the South American paradigm, in an almost ironic kind of reversal of Alejo Carpentier's voyage of musical discovery in his 1953 work, The Lost Steps. As this is going on, the Uruguayan violinist Federico Britos celebrates five decades in the lonely ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
