Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise June 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Leo Blanco to play solo gig at Sage Gateshead as part of Vamos! Festival (Friday July 5)

Venezuelan pianist Leo Blanco is a genuine virtuoso with a huge musical personality. His music is rooted in the Africa-Latina rhythms of his homeland and enriched by the vast knowledge of jazz and understanding of the classical tradition that you might expect from a professor of piano at America’s premier music college, Berklee.
His solo concerts are enthralling and rhapsodic displays of technical command and emotional communication, showing why on previous visits to Scotland Blanco has earned five-star reviews from The Scotsman and The Herald, drawn standing ovations at Aberdeen Jazz Festival and is the proud winner of a coveted Bank of Scotland Herald Angel, awarded for outstanding performances during the Edinburgh Festival.
As a composer Blanco has scored music for the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, his own string quartet and most recently, Scottish horn quartet Brass Jaw, and his recordings have featured saxophonists Dave Liebman and Donny McCaslin, West African guitarist Lionel Loueke, Grammy award-winning singer Luciana Souza, and drummer Antonio Sanchez.
