New York-based, Grammy-nominated, Mexican singer and composer Magos Herrera is one of the most expressive, beautiful voices in the contemporary Latin American jazz scene. Herrera is best known for her eloquent vocal improvisation and her bold style, which embraces elements of contemporary jazz with Latin American melodies and rhythms, in a style that elegantly blends boundaries. In her return to our stage (physical and virtual) she will be joined by the Magos Herrera Ensemble, an acoustic quartet that incorporates harmonic jazz principles and improvisational elements that includes guitarist Vinícius Gomes, bassist Sam Minaie, and drummer Alex Kautz.
On the program is the premiere of Herrera's most recent composition, commissioned through Chamber Music America's New Jazz Works, alongside pieces that she created and produced during the pandemic.
