Date: Thursday 25th February 2016
Heads South combines Afro-Cuban and other Latin influenced rhythms with tuneful melodies in an enthralling repertoire of original compositions and arrangements of classic tunes. Following their sell-out show at The Bosuns last year – Heads South return for their only date in Cornwall !
For newcomers to this music, think Buena Vista Social Club in a smaller package, add the excitement of Jazz, and imbibe the warmth of a Latin evening…
Latin Jazz Quintet Heads South combines Cuban and other Latin rhythms with distinctive melodies in a dynamic repertoire of original and classic tunes. The band features top UK trumpeter Steve Waterman trumpet, Cuban percussionist Chino Martell Morgan on congas, bongos, cajon, guiro, Buster Birch on drums, timbale, castanets, frame drum, Venezuelan bassist Adolfredo Pulido, and leader/composer John Harriman on piano and organ.
The band has released two albums to critical acclaim, it was chosen to perform a national tour of Wales sponsored by the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and Arts Council of Wales, and was selected from more than 75 bands nationwide as a winner of the UK Jazz Services/National Touring Forum award for 2014/5.
"The compositions and keyboard playing of leader John Harriman and the trumpet of Steve Waterman combine to create a spare, crisp, invigorating set of Latin jazz…Waterman’s mastery of this idiom suits Harriman’s deceptively simple compositions to perfection" Dave Gelly, The Observer.
“Cool, cultured and exhilarating” Keith Ames, The Musician.
"Very talented..dazzling solos....a Band that is well worth seeing" The Jazzmann
"Brimming with infectious high-energy grooves" JazzUK
“Superb” Latin Jazz Network (USA)
