Performing “Tiempo de Almendra” by Gregor Huebner

“In the 1990s Gregor Huebner seems to have fallen into a time-warp the door of which portal opened into Argentina. There Huebner and his brother discovered the magic of Latin American music. The effect on him was mesmerising for that is where his heart often lies despite the fact that he is classically trained, has performed violin concertos and other classical music with the Sirius Quartet and also performed with several stellar musicians such as Joe Zawinul. Lately, however, the urge to express himself in the Brasilian and the Latin idioms has been irresistible; so compelling in fact that he ended up touring Argentina, Brasil and Cuba extensively, for years, playing with musicians steeped in their cultures – men like Johnny Almendra, Portinho and Pedro Giraudo, and from Uruguay – the bandoneon player Raul Jaurena. And that’s how the ensemble El Violin Latino eventually was born.” — Raul da Gama – Senior Writer and Editor, Latin Jazz Network
