Prefigurind Evenimentul de jazz al anului 2015 din Oradea, care va avea loc la Filarmonica oradeana in data de 31 martie, un trio de exceptie din Chicago (US) ajunge in premiera in Romania, la Oradea @Moszkva Cafe: Chris Weller’s Hanging Hearts
The group features it’s leader Chris Weller on tenor saxophone and compositions, Cole DeGenova on keyboards, and Devin Drobka on drums. While Chris and Cole grew up in Chicago, playing together professionally in jazz and blues clubs by the age of 15, the trio was completed at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where all three members graduated. The trio’s repertoire consists mostly of Weller’s original compositions, however the group is also known to deconstruct songs in the jazz, classical, pop, and rock idioms. The unique voice of each musician gives Hanging Hearts a freshly original sound with a powerful sense of sincerity.
Members of the group have performed around the world, most notably at the Chicago Jazz Festival, Jazz Showcase, and New York’s Carnegie Hall and have performed with Joe Lovano, Jerry Bergonzi, Greg Osby, Tony Malaby, Mike Moreno, Tower of Power, Lettuce, Kurt Elling, Snarky Puppy, Kenny Barron, and Big Boi (Outkast) among many others. Though they have been playing together for years, the group will release their debut album in October ’14 and have supporting tours in both the US and Europe.
