Curtis Brothers QuartetJuly 25, 2014
Brothers Luques (bass) and Zaccai (piano) Curtis follow in the rich, family tradition of jazz.
Significant clues to their desire for self-determination can be found in the declarative title of their recent album, Completion of Proof, as well as the bold moniker they have chosen for their record label, Truth Revolution. In this time of artists eschewing the tired, pie-in-the-sky sense of waiting for a mythical record deal, Luques and Zaccai have clearly set out on a path of autonomy on the recorded side of their respective and collective careers.
Their music is rife with blues, swing rhythms of Africa-Caribbean-New Orleans lineage, and the basic core elements that make jazz music a spicy, hard-bop melting pot.
This event is part of New England Arts & Entertainment's Summer Jazz Series at the Poli Club. Season tickets for all four shows are available for $80 and include a reserved table. Call 203-346-2000 for details.
