Elio Villafranca & The Jass Syncopators - NJPAC - Newark, NJ

"Cinqué - Music of the Caribbean" 
by Elio Villafranca

In February 2015 at The Appel Room - Jazz at Lincoln Center, Villafranca presented the world premiere of Cinqué - Suite of the Caribbean, inspired by the African slave Cinqué, who led the rebellion aboard the ship Amistad in 1839 on his voyage to Cuba.
There are good reasons why Wynton Marsalis and Chick Corea have taken a personal interest in Elio Villafranca. Hailing from Havana, Cuba, Elio is rooted in the tradition and rhythms of the Caribbean, yet fully embraces the elements of modern jazz.
Caribbean Tinge (Motema 2014) is his seventh album as a leader, and was recorded during two live performances at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center in NYC. Performance components are both aural and visual, and audiences connect to both aspects.
Elio Villafranca & The Jass Syncopators create a multi-layered musical dialogue. Percussion, brass and ivory keys set the stage for folkloric dance, Caribbean rhythms and 21st-century jazz. Together, the music and dance integrate a new body of movement and syncopation within the performance of the 8 original Villafranca compositions. Grammy® nominee Villafranca is deeply inspired by Duke Ellington's music of the 1940's, yet proudly aware of his own Latin heritage.
"The band swings hard and brings a traditional yet innovative style to the roots of jazz and Afro Caribbean music. I am profoundly moved by Elio's vision and musicianship. He is a treasured member of the family here at Jazz at Lincoln Center."
- Wynton Marsalis
"Elio's music is passionate. A brand new application of ancient ways." - Chick Corea
