Australian jazz guitarist Albare will be appearing in concert at Delray Beach’s Arts Garage on Saturday June 14th, 2014.  Accompanying him will be two Cuban musicians: Axel Tosca on piano, Yunior Terry on bass, plus Venezuelan  drummer Pablo Bencid.

Albare will be joined by a very special guest and friend of Arts Garage: Sammy Figueroa, a beloved master percussionist whose home is in South Florida but whose travels in recent years include world tours with Sonny Rollins and Brazilian super-star Jorge Ben Jor.   As a solo recording artist with his own band, Sammy has been honored with two Grammy Nominations for Best Latin Jazz album.

Albare is a virtuoso guitarist with a wealth of global influences.   Born in Morocco, but raised in Israel and France, he has resided in Australia since his mid-20’s, where he has indulged his love of jazz from a multitude of angles.  As one of Australia’s most prominent musicians, when not recording or travelling around the globe, he immerses himself in the genre locally, heading up the Melbourne Jazz Festival, chairing the Annual Jazz Awards, encouraging young musicians through his philanthropic ways and more.    This combination of dedication to the art form of jazz and its community earned him an Order Of Australia in 2008.

Albare’s music is exploratory, swinging and yet romantic, at times laces with elements of his Middle Eastern roots.  Albare will be showcasing his extensive repertoire, from music recorded in the ‘90’s, to previously unheard new material, and especially music from his most recent release The  Road Ahead and his previous album “Long Way”.  Both of these albums coincide with Albare’s artistic relationship with Germany’s Matthias Winckelmann and his premier jazz record label Enja.

His signature guitar sound, with its stunning blend of warmth and precision, is no mistake; all of his custom designed instruments are courtesy of his ongoing musical partnerships with Gibson Guitars and independent engineers, spanning their association and backing of over twenty years.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to spend an evening discovering the unique style and extraordinary band.
