The John Damberg Latin Jazz Quintet New Originals Concert presents a concert of new original songs penned by John Damberg and Mark Manners set to the hot, funky rhythms of Brazilian Samba, Baion, Trinidadian Calypso, Soca, Afro-Cuban Mambo, Cha Cha Cha, swinging American Jazz, and New Orleans 2nd line funk. The Ensemble’s original sound features an exotic melodic blend of the John Damberg’s lush vibes & steel drum, Mark Manners woody classical guitar, and Laura Koenig’s birdlike melodious flute, mixed with Bob Andrews’ funky bass, and Alaska’s drum set Tour de Force Cameron Cartland.
The John Damberg Latin Jazz Quintet strives to present fresh, new musical landscapes for Alaskans to enjoy. Their mission is to create new Latin Jazz compositions and re-discover the music of the Latin Jazz Icons of the Caribbean, Central, and South America in performances throughout Alaska and beyond.
