Jazz@CAM: The Dominican Jazz Project

The Dominican Jazz Project

CAM Members: $35
Not-Yet Members: $55



The Dominican Jazz Project began when Dominican-born jazz artist, Guillo Carias, invited American jazz pianist and composer, Stephen Anderson, to perform with him and jazz artists living in the Dominican Republic for the 2014 Jazzomania Jazz Festival in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic that was hosted by Tony Dominguez and Carlos Francisco Elías.  The concert and associated clinic went beautifully, and the drummer, Guy Frómeta, invited Anderson to return to Santo Domingo to perform with him in his group for the Casa de Teatro Jazz Festival a few months later.  It was there that Anderson met Sandy Gabriel, a nationally renowned tenor saxophonist.  Their collective friendship grew further with that experience, and following the festival, they agreed to record together.  The result was their 2016 self-titled CD release, The Dominican Jazz Project, that was recorded in the days following the UNC Summer Jazz Workshop where the artists served as guest faculty and where Anderson serves as director.  Soon after, renowned Dominican percussionist, David Almengod, joined the group.
