Roberto Fonseca Trio Support: The Ronnie Scotts All Stars

Booking now closed, a few tickets still left on the door.

Line up confirmed: Roberto Fonseca - Piano, Keys, Vocals; Ramses Rodriguez - Drums & Yandy Martinez - Bass & Double Bass!

The dazzling musician The New York Times called “a charismatic spark plug of a pianist from Cuba” made his debut at the Havana International Jazz Festival in 1990 when he was 15.

Ten years and several solo albums later, the rousing young jazz pianist joined the internationally acclaimed orchestra of charismatic  sonero Ibrahim Ferrer, touring the world and recording and producing his late release “Mi sueño. A bolero Songbook“. Fonseca also played with Buena Vista Social Club™ and recorded and toured with another of its solo stars Omara Portuondo.

An ingenious composer who draws on a wide range of musical traditions and genres,  over the years has released how own projects such as: “Zamazu“, “Akokan” and “Jazz in Marciac“.

In 2009 Fonseca brought together Fonseca brought together Cuban and African musicians for his highly praised 2012 recording and GRAMMY nominated “Yo”, a mix of acoustic and electric sounds the Times called “by turns folkloric and turbocharged.”

Fonseca recently released the EP “At Home” along with Mali singer Fatoumata Diawara, persuading this transatlantic meeting of sounds and cultures. The keyboardist, Down Beat wrote, “is a terrific example of what makes 21st century improvised music so exciting: Fonseca is part of a generation of musicians who feel that all sounds from all countries are accessible to them, either in acoustic, electric or digitized form.”

Accompanied by Ramsés ‘Dynamite’ Rodriguez on drums and Yandy Martinez on bass it’s impossible to sit still when Fonseca’s trio takes off.
