Bato The Yugo feat. Sten Hostfalt, Marko Djordjevic LIVE at Nublu NYC MAY 16 2010
May 16 - May 17, 2010
Bato 'The Yugo' Andonov featuring Sten Hostfalt and Marko Djordjevic live in concert at Nublu NYC May 16 2010 at 11pm
Modern jazz guitar sensation and vocalist Branislav 'Bato The Yugo' Andonov is one of few gypsy improvisers conciously working on taking the rich musical heritage and tradition forward. Bypassing all the cliches and rehashed Django retro soundalikes, as well as the current pop-gimmickry criminally unrightfully labeled 'Gypsy'. Bato carries and represents the legacy and traditional knowledge of gypsy music expressed with a modern innovative contemporary sound and pioneering new original and imaginative vocabulary.
If you expect to hear 'Tiger Rag' or Nuages, you're out of luck. This is NOT gypsy Jazz of the 1930's and 40's, but Gypsy Jazz of TODAY, in our own time and era . Fittingly Bato's band typically includes some of the most active and creative improvisers on today's creative NYC music scene. Here, we hear him with longtime companions virtuoso guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Sten Hostfalt on electric bass, acclaimed drum phenom Marko Djordjevic, Yusuke Yamamoto on keyboards and Welf Dorr on saxophones.
