Thanks to intern Jesse Corrigan - I was given the heads up on exciting developments with this stellar band of musicians - which includes founder and trumpeter David Buchbinder, pianist Hilario Duran, Mark Kelso and bassist Roberto Occhipinti - Roberto is producing their upcoming album - slated for release in January 2011.
An incredible fusion of influences from Arabic, Roma, Sephardic, Cuban and North African the next incarnation features vocals for the first time - vocalist and Juno Maryem Tollar to be exact will add Ladino inspired flavour to the group.
The group is scheduled to perform at the upcoming Ashkenaz festival - be sure to catch this award winning collection of musicians, producers, composers and educators.
