Music@311: Jazz Thursday Featuring Gary Gazaway and El Buho

TheArtsAt311 S. Church St. Jonesboro
Thursday June 27, 2013. 6:30 pm
Nationally known trumpeter Gary Gazaway and his “El Búho Jazz Project” will perform for KASU JAZZ THURSDAY, on June 27th, 6:30 – 8:30 PM, at ARTS@311, 311 S Church Street in Jonesboro. This dynamic group features keyboardist Patrick Fusco, bassist Doc Samba, and drummer Peewee Jackson, all from Memphis. Gazaway plays trumpet and keyboard and leads the group through original songs and modified Jazz standards that can be melodic, mellow, and intense, and contain open sections for modern free-form improvisation, with traditional, ethnic, and current rhythm styles layered underneath. His music has been described as as an incredible fusion of Blues, Jazz, Rock, and Latin, that creates a fresh instrumental sound.
 

Trumpeter, producer, and composer Gary “El Búho” Gazaway is originally from Northeast Arkansas, where at an early age he was influenced by the region’s rich musical heritage of Blues, Soul , Rockabilly, Folk, Country, and Jazz. In 1976, he began living, working, and performing extensively in New York City, Miami , Puerto Rico, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Hawaii, and Nashville; exploring and researching the music and culture from each community. Gazaway has performed or recorded with a long list of diverse Latin and American artists including Israel (Cachou) Lopez, The Machito Orchestra, Celia Cruz, Lisette, Flora Purim, OPA, Toninho Horta, Jaco Pastorius, Ornette Coleman, Nneena Freelon, Ira Sullivan, Herb Alpert, Joe Cocker, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Steve Winwood, The Memphis Horns, The Committments, Delbert McClinton, George Jones, Derek Trucks, Victor Wooten, Phish; and on more than 25 major label albums, 5 multi-platinum. At present, along with studio production, Gary Gazaway performs with his group “El Búho”, a nickname fondly bestowed to him in 1979 by musicians from South America and translates into english as “The Owl”. 
 
In 2008, Mr. Gazaway created and founded Arkansas’ official “Rock And Roll Highway 67, a 100 mile stretch of Old US Highway 67 from the Missouri state line, south to Newport, designated to memorialize the music, musicians, clubs, history, and heritage where Rockabilly music began.
 
 
REVIEWS:
"El Búho is a jazz fusion group led by the amazing trumpeter Gary Gazaway. The music on his album is a blend of many different styles, all fused into this untouchable sound. The musicianship has got to be some of the best I’ve ever heard. Though impressive musicianship makes the album an instant favorite, the shear brilliance of the musical arrangements completely overwhelmed my senses. I can’t remember ever hearing the trumpet being played like what you hear on his album. I’ll never look at the trumpet in the same way again. It just fit so eloquently with the music and the other instruments. This album is pure genius. That’s all there is to it." GLOBAL MUSE NETWORK
 
"El Búho is one of the most innovative ideas to grace the music world in recent years and leader Gary Gazaway and his group put on a concert that was nothing short of spectacular. They played everything from latin grooves and middle eastern melodies, to classic blues and straight ahead jazz. "  MUSIC PANORAMA ONLINE
 
"A Feast of Friends. Hot Stuff!!… El Búho is possibly the most exciting jazz artist I’ve learned of this year."  KUCR RADIO, LOS ANGELES
 
"If you like jazz, either old-school or new-school, free-floating solos, and a bunch of crazy-legged dancers on the floor, you will dig El Búho’s music."  ST. LOUIS RIVERFRONT TIMES
 
Also performing, Jamming With The Swing Band Project.
