Let the magic happen… again!
The first time percussionist Adriano Adewale and pianist Benjamim Taubkin met on stage in London it was pure magic. It all happened during the Summer of 2009 at a East London jazz shack called Vortex. And Jungle was there among almost 100 lucky members of the audience that witnessed the elaborated musical notes from Taubkin’s piano mingle with Adewale’s scathing percussion. It was a night to remember.
Luckily, the concert based on improvisation was “re-enacted” and recorded and is now being launched as a CD. The Vortex Sessions”, recorded in November 2010 at the same club in a single 4-hour session showcase Brazilian pianist Benjamim Taubkin and the Brazilian percussionist Adriano Adewale (based in the UK, since 2000) at their best.
And to celebrate the album’s launch, they will once again play at the Vortex. “It is with this same spirit, to bring a tune created in the moment where the tapping and exchanges happen all the time, that we will present a concert releasing this album at this special and inspiring venue”, says Benjamin.
It will be yet another opportunity to check live Adewale’s imposing collection of firepower deployed with rare restraint accompanying Taubkin’s intricate sound. Do not miss it!
