Orquesta Failde

Desde Matanzas, Cuba, Orquesta Faílde lanza su nuevo álbum titulado Joyas Inéditas. Honrando la memoria de Miguel Faílde, creador del danzón, en el centenario de su partida física, este proyecto rescata obras inéditas nunca antes grabadas.

La Dra.C. María Victoria Oliver Luis (Musicóloga) al referirse a este nuevo trabajo discográfico de la Orquesta Faílde nos dice: “Estas Joyas inéditas pertenecen al patrimonio de la música popular cubana; son piezas que en su mayoría han sobrevivido ocultas al paso del tiempo, para ser reestrenadas a más de un siglo de su creación y honrar así el legado de una identidad.”

De los cinco temas grabados en este disco, cuatro son de la autoría de Miguel Faílde: “El Naranjero”, “Cuba Libre”, “A La Habana me voy” (arreglo de José Antonio González) y “Nievecita” (arreglo de Ethiel Faílde y José Antonio González), los cuales conservan la esencia de su partitura original. El quinto tema, “Rompiendo la rutina” (arreglo de Alejandro Falcón), es de la autoría de Aniceto Díaz (a quien se le reconoce como el creador del danzonete) y cuenta con la magistral interpretación de la inigualable Diva del Buena Vista Social Club, Omara Portuondo. Es un tema muy popular que forma parte del repertorio de la Orquesta Faílde, y que ahora queda registrado para la posteridad junto a las joyas del Maestro Miguel Faílde.

Por su parte, Ethiel Faílde, flautista, director musical, creador y líder de la joven Orquesta Faílde, cuya tesonera labor por mantener viva la rica tradición danzonera es digna de reconocimiento, nos dice sobre esta magnífica producción:

“Este disco es una auténtica obra de arqueología musical, un proyecto cultural que honra la memoria de Miguel Faílde y pone su obra en este siglo XXI, justo en el centenario de su partida física. Este sueño es posible gracias al apoyo de la Dirección Provincial de Cultura de Matanzas, la Egrem y la Asociación de Danzoneros “Miguel Faílde”. También al paciente trabajo investigativo de la Dra.C. María Victoria Oliver y la Lic. Ada Oviedo, que permitió el rescate de las partituras. Y a los ingenieros Ignacio “Nacho” Molino y Alex Psaroudakis, quienes aportaron su maestría y sensibilidad para alcanzar el empaque sonoro que estas joyas merecen.”

Cerramos esta nota informativa con las palabras de la La Dra.C. María Victoria Oliver: “Joyas inéditas, desde la historiografía musical es un hito en el renacer del danzón cubano, como hecho sonoro, una entrega de suma responsabilidad.”

Bobby Sanabria MULTIVERSE Big Band to release new recording: “Vox Humana”

Celebrating 25 years! The multi-Grammy nominated Bobby Sanabria MULTIVERSE Big Band is set to release their new recording: “Vox Humana” featuring vocalists Janis Siegel, Antoinette Montague, Jennifer Jade Ledesna.

Recorded Live at Dizzy’s Club Cola in NYC
Release Date: Spring 2023
Record Label: Jazzheads

New York – January 18th – On the heels of their Grammy nominated and 2019 Jazz Journalists Association Album of the Year Award winning critically acclaimed masterwork, West Side Story Reimagined, and in celebration of their 25th anniversary – drummer, percussionist, composer, arranger, bandleader, educator, Bobby Sanabria and his Multiverse Big Band return with their most ambitious work to date, VOX HUMANA.

Bobby states, “Over the course of our many Grammy nominated albums we’ve occasionally featured tracks with vocals. But I’ve always envisioned doing an entire vocal album framed by the Multiverse Big Band. Now with three of today’s greatest contemporary singing talents – multi-Grammy award winner Janis Siegel from the Manhattan Transfer, blues and jazz Queen Antoinette Montague, and the multilingual powerhouse, Jennifer Jade Ledesna, today that vision has finally become a reality.

The individually distinct voices that Janis, Antoinette, and Jennifer possess make them each unique. But the X factor they all have is they are all masterful improvisors in the best sense of the jazz tradition. Added to the mix is our great conguero, Oreste Abrantes, who also sings lead on two tracks. Having that multi- dimensional vocal talent framed by the power, nuance, and tonal variety that only a big band can provide, combined with the repertoire I’ve chosen to showcase them and the band and the incredible variety of Afro- Latin, straight ahead swing, funk, R&B, and rock rhythmic vocabulary that we are masters of and readily have at our disposal in the Multiverse, I believe VOX HUMANA will prove to be our greatest achievement.

That repertoire has a personal meaning to me as I see VOX HUMANA as a biographical work. I’m a product of my environment. I’m a Nuyorican, a person of Puerto Rican descent growing up in New York City. In my case the South Bronx during a time period when pop, jazz, R&B, rock, funk, and Latin music of all kinds all co-existed as equals. It was the last era when the big bands of masters like Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Machito, Tito Puente, Tito Rodriguez, Don Ellis, and more were in the public eye, and they became my heroes. Vocalists who could deliver a message with subtlety, nuance, and when needed, power, were called upon to deliver poetry crafted by genius song writers. You’ll hear all that and more through the soaring vocals and improv talents of Janis, Antoinette, and Jennifer, along with Oreste, as well as the incredible jazz-oriented arrangements and exciting Pan Afro-Latin rhythms played by a big band that literally takes no prisoners when it hits the stage.”

The repertoire Bobby speaks of includes 1 original and 12 unique re-workings of pop hits like Spooky, Christine Aguilera’s Genie In a Bottle, and Steely Dan’s Do It Again; NEA Jazz Master Eddie Palmieri’s, Mi Congo and Puerto Rico along with the island’s greatest composer, Rafael Hernandez’s, Capullito De Aleli; the classic Joe Cuba R&B bolero, To Be With You; Brazilian standards Partido Alto and Amazonas; and from the world of Broadway theater, I Love You Porgy, and the iconic jump blues, Let The Good Times Roll. The CD also includes an original message bearing piece, Who Taught You That, as well as what may possibly be the most exciting interpretation of the Ellington associated classic, Caravan, and that has ever been recorded. 

Adding to the excitement of the performance, VOX HUMANA was recorded in front of a live audience. Bobby states, “As with our previous work, we recorded VOX HUMANA live at NYC’s Dizzy’s Club Coca – Cola. My musicians represent NYC’s finest. That means they’re the greatest in the world. The added level of excitement created by the audience inspired us in the MULTIVERSE Big Band to a heightened new level of performance virtuosity that listeners will hear explode out of the speakers just as the audience at Dizzy’s experienced in person.”

The history of the Bobby Sanabria MULTIVERSE Big Band is indeed one based on his rich multi-cultural heritage as a Nuyorican growing up in New York City’s South Bronx. His concept of having a big band that has no genre boundaries with limitless possibilities was forged 25 years ago back in 1998. It has yielded a series of groundbreaking, critically acclaimed albums that have all been Grammy-nominated with the band thrilling audiences worldwide at venues like the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, The Ravinia Festival, Verona Jazz Festival in Europe, and more.
