After several individual productions, Gabriel Espinosa and Hendrik Meurkens join forces as musicians, composers and arrangers to share with us their last two CDs recorded in New York city under the label of Zoho Records. “Celebrating” was released in 2012 and was among the best CDs of JazzWeek in that year.
One of the most important concerts of this group was at the Coca Cola Dizzys Lincoln Center in July 2013.
Due to the great success of “Celebrating” Espinosa and Meurkens unite their talents once again and produced their second CD entitled “Little Samba Samba” released in November 2014. The group had an excellent presentation in Tucson Jazz Festival in January 2015 and will be performing at the Iridium in New York City this summer.
The elements of that will perform at the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival are: Alison Wedding (USA), Misha Tsiganov (Russia), Adriano Santos (Brazil), Hendrik Meurkens (Germany) and Gabriel Espinosa from Merida, Yucatan. That night the group will present its two latest music CDs with a flavor of Jazz Brasileiro (with a touch of bolero).
