Sueños Jazz Quintet
Sueños is a band pushing the evolution of jazz into a contemporary setting. Rhythms borrowed from Hip-Hop and R&B blend seamlessly with modal and gospel harmony, with bebop-tinged horns flowing over the top to paint a unique musical portrait. We write and perform original music as well as covering songs by artists such as Roy Hargrove, Christian Scott, Kanye West, and J Dilla. Our sound is flexible and easily adapted to any venue, from large rock clubs to intimate art galleries. The Atlantic included Sueños in a feature for their “Saturday Night in America” series. We have performed at the Fillmore Street Jazz Festival in SF and the PDX Jazz Festival in Portland, as well as at secret shows curated by SOFAR Sounds SF, SOFAR Sounds Portland, and SOFAR Sounds NY. Recently Sueños performed to a packed house at Herb Alpert's Vibrato Grill Jazz in Beverly Hills, LA. We are currently working on our second album.
