Music @NYPL presents Mark Weinstein Quartet
Mark Weinstein plays world-based jazz and post-bop with world-class musicians rooted in Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, African, Jewish and Indian traditions. A Latin jazz innovator, Mark was among the first jazz musicians to record with traditional Cuban rhythm sections. His classic recording, Cuban Roots, released in 1967, with Mark on trombone and Chick Corea on piano, transformed Latin jazz, as have his Latin jazz recordings on flute. These include Cuban Roots Revisited (1999), Algo Mas (2005), Con Alma (2007) and Timbasa (2010). His Brazilian jazz recordings include Tudo de Bom (2003), O Nosso Amor (2006), Lua e Sol (2008) and Jazz Brazil (2011). His Jewish albums Shifra Tanzt (2002) and Milling Time (2001) recorded in Kiev Ukraine, demonstrate the breadth of his musical conception as do his straight ahead albums, Seasoning (1996), Three Dueces (2000) and Straight, No Chaser (2008). His recent recordings include such notables as Cuban pianist Omar Sosa, Latin jazz legend Mark Levine, Brazilian guitarist Romero Lubambo, percussionists Cyro Baptista, Francisco Aguabella and Pedrito Martinez, bassists Santi Debriano, Nilson Mata and Mike Richmond as well as guitarists Dave Stryker, Jean Paul Bourelly, Vic Juris, Paul Meyers, Brad Shepik and Ed Cherry, drummers Cindy Blackman, Victor Lewis, Paulo Braga and Cecil Brooks III. Mark has performed as a sideman with Cal Tjader, Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente, Herbie Mann, Maynard Ferguson Thad Jones/Mel Lewis, Clark Terry, Joe Henderson and many others.
