Argentinean-Brazilian jazz ensemble EL ECO comes straight out of the heart of South America. Led by drummer and composer Guillermo Nojechowicz, EL ECO combines the swaying tempos of Brazil with the darker themes and complex rhythms of Argentina and Uruguay. Garnering praise from the likes of Paquito D’Rivera (who calls Guillermo’s tunes “fantastic”), EL ECO presents a unique and timeless blend of sophisticated Latin jazz. EL ECO has been featured in a variety of festivals including the Telluride Jazz Celebration, Curacao Jazz Festival, and the Buenos Aires Jazz Festival, among others.
Nojechowicz, the band’s leader, drummer, and composer, is also an international clinician and educator. He recently performed with his student ensemble and special guest Joshua Redman at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School through a collaborative program with Harvard University. He has also appeared at the Panama Jazz Festival, Panama, with his World Jazz Ensemble students, and his music has been featured on NPR’s syndicated radio program ‘Jazz Set,’ and on Radio Nacional in Argentina.
Nojechowicz is joined by a Grammy award-winning vocalist Kim Nazarian. Nazarian is one of the founding members of the highly successful vocal jazz group, The New York Voices. Along with Nazarian, joining EL ECO is saxophonist Marco Pignataro, who has shared the stage with Eddie Gomez, Joe Lovano and Dave Liebman, and bassist Fernando Huergo, who has played alongside Danilo Perez, Tom Harrel, and Bob Moses. The featured guest of the evening is pianist and composer Osmany Paredes. Hailing from Cuba, Paredes has performed alongside Richard Bona, Giovanni Hidalgo, and George Garzone, among others. Recently, Paredes received critical acclaim for his performance on Isaac Delgado’s “En Primera Plena.”
EL ECO is thrilled to present an exciting evening of unique and original music at Ryles Jazz Club on June 15 at 9:00 PM. Ryles Jazz Club functions as a full service restaurant and bar.
