EL ECO with Guillermo Nojechowicz
CD Release Event
Guillermo’s group EL ECO has been featured on National Public Radio's Jazz Set with host and Tony and Grammy Award-winning vocalist, Dee Dee Bridgewater. His band has performed at many top venues and festivals including the Montreal Jazz Festival in Canada, Freihofer Jazz Festival in Saratoga Springs, NY, the Blue Note in New York City and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The group's new CD "Puerto de Buenos Aires 1933" was inspired by some family history - the journey that Guillermo’s father took with his mother as a young child, leaving Eastern Europe for Argentina in 1933. They fled to a new life, but those they left behind perished in the Holocaust. See EL ECO with Guillermo Nojechowicz featuring Helio Alves, Fernando Huergo, Marco Pignataro and Brian Lynch.

Brubeck Brothers Quartet
Chris and Dan Brubeck have been making music together practically all their lives. Drummer Dan and bassist, trombonist, and composer Chris cut their first record together in 1966—nearly a half-century ago. They’ve subsequently played a variety of styles in a number of different groups, as well as with their father, jazz giant Dave Brubeck, and with their own Brubeck Brothers Quartet. With Dan and Chris as the foundation, guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb, complete this dynamic quartet. They perform at concert series, colleges, and jazz festivals across North America and Europe including the Newport, Detroit, Montreal, Playboy/Hollywood Bowl, and Monterey Jazz Festivals. The Quartet’s last cd, LifeTimes was a hit on the Jazz Week radio chart where it made the Top Ten list as one of the most played jazz recordings of the year.
