ALTURAS ‘sin palabras’ Album Launch at Hotel Blue
Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains.
Sat 16th May 2015, 7:00pm. Doors Open 6pm.
Alturas are a Sydney-based quintet specialising in the performance of contemporary tango music with distinct jazz influences.
Inspired by the music of Argentina, ‘Alturas’ combines influences from classical, latin and tango to create a unique blend of haunting melodies with jazz-inspired solos.
‘Alturas’ have been performing as a group since 2009. The group started as a duo with Gaye Thomas (flute/bandoneon) and Jane Andino (piano). They have over the years grown to become a quintet, performing throughout Eastern Australia. Members also include Inge Courtney-Haentjes (violin/ viola), Greg Gibson (sax/clarinet), and Stan Valacos (Bass). The group have performed twice for the National Argentine Day celebrations in Canberra, at the request of the Argentinean Embassy.
With a constantly expanding repertoire, Alturas push boundaries with unique re-workings of traditional tangos, along with stunning arrangements of Piazzolla, Ziegler, Egozcue and contemporary composers including several tango-inspired original pieces.
“An absolute pleasure to play Alturas. Congratulations on a beautiful sounding album.” – Robbie Buck, The Inside Sleeve, Radio National
“I get a lot of CDs and my ears perked up when I heard yours.” – Lucky Oceans, The Daily Planet, Radio National.
Following on from their debut CD, ‘Café con Tango’, Alturas are currently recording their second CD ‘sin palabras’ which moves further into the genre of jazz and includes works from Venezuela and Brazil as well as many Argentinean classics.
They will be embarking on an album launch tour from May 2015.
