KCC Productions and the Van Dyke Cafe present the Felipe Lamoglia Ensemble, Thursday, September 15, at 9 PM. Felipe will be premiering his new project, "IRESOUNDS", a mix of his Afro-Cuban roots, Latin jazz, and contemporary jazz. Featured personnel are Felipe Lamoglia, sax, EWI, Cisco Damas, trumpet, Kemuel Roig, piano, Reinier Guerra, drums, Luis Diaz, percussion, and Nestor Del Prado, bass, with special guest Dante Luciani, trombone (Professor of Jazz Studies, Frost School of Music, University of Miami). They have a superb brass section and a rhythm section of exceptional young Cuban musicians. Their music and arrangements are entirely Felipe’s, done with the flavor of the tunes he wrote for Arturo Sandoval’s Grammy-winning “Rumba Palace .”
Lamoglia began playing with Grammy winner Arturo Sandoval in 2001, performing all over the world and recording on “Trumpet Evolution”, as well as two DVD releases: “Live at the Blue Note NYC” and “Live at the Ann Arbor Summer Festival”. In 2004 he joined Grammy winner Gonzalo Rubalcaba, recording on his Grammy-nominated album, “Paseo” (Blue Note). In 2006 Lamoglia arranged and played on Ignacio Berroa’s debut album “Codes”, also released on Blue Note and nominated for a Grammy. In 2007 Felipe contributed as arranger, performer, and composer for “Rumba Palace.”
Felipe has shared the stage with musical giants such as Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker, Wynton Marsalis, Eldar, Dafnis Prieto, Ignacio Berroa and many others, participating in Major Jazz Festivals in the U.S. and abroad including JVC, Playboy, Newport, Heineken Jazz, and Red Sea, and in venues such as Blue Note, Iridium, Jazz Standard, Yoshi's, Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola and many more.
The Van Dyke is located at 846 Lincoln Road, South Beach. For more information, call 305-534-3600, visit thevandykecafe.com, or contact KCC Productions.
