Dany Noel (guitar), Ivo Neame (piano), Jorge Pérez (drums).
A new project led by Cuban bass virtuoso and singer Dany Noel featuring Spanish drum/ percussion star, Jorge Pérez and one of most profound UK pianist, Ivo Neame.
Dany Noel was born in Cuba, with extensive experience in Latin jazz and flamenco. His curious soul keeps challenging the definition of genre, and empowers the use of technicality devoted to music.
At the age of 10 he started playing bass and double bass with many Cuban orchestras and artists of recognised national and international prestige like Pío Leyva and Omara Portuondo, members of “Buena Vista Social Club”, Ángel Bonnet, Eddy Gaytán, Xiomara Laugart, and has always been involved in numerous folk music and Latin jazz projects. In 2004, together with the well-known drummer Horacio “El Negro” Hernández, he founded ITALUBA, a quartet of which he is bassist, composer and arranger. Their record ITALUBA 1 won a Grammy nomination, in the same year, for best album in the Latin jazz category.
Spanish born in Boston, U.S.A, Jorge Pérez is a performer, producer, composer, teacher and one of those atypical drummers/percussionists that are also the leaders and composers of their bands.
In 2008 he gets a scholarship form Berklee College of Music where is selected to be part of the elite group “Berklee Global Jazz Institute”, in which he studies with Danilo Perez, John Patitucci and Joe Lovano. He graduates in 2011 obtaining a mayor in Performance, and returns to Spain where he starts Patax, band with which we has released 8 albums up to date, blending flamenco, salsa, Funk, Rock, jazz and folk music.
Jorge has worked with Jerry Gonzalez, Alain Pérez, Erwin Schrott, Chenoa, Christian Galvez, Jesus Molina, Jorge Pardo and Shakira among others.
Ivo Neame is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger. As a pianist he is a vital cog in several of European jazz’s most forward-looking groups including Phronesis and the Marius Neset Quintet.
Ivo’s music is a living, breathing contradiction – complex yet accessible, considered yet spontaneous, traditional yet forward-thinking. Ivo studied at the Royal Academy of Music, and since leaving in 2003 he has performed and recorded with highly esteemed musicians at home and abroad such as David Binney, Kenny Wheeler and Hermeto Pascoal. He has also played on more than 50 albums as a sideman and a leader.
