Eugene Uman's Convergence Project
It's impossible to say what the annual Eugene Uman Project concert will consist of, but one thing is for sure: it will be fresh, it'll make the audience move, and it'll keep the performers and listeners on their toes as it ventures deep into rhythmic, harmonic and modal territory seeking new, undiscovered possibilities.
With Uman's music, you can expect the unexpected, but you can also expect a wave of musical heat pouring off the stage as his innovative compositions weave strands from Colombia and Cuba with modal and rhythmic borders from India and regions of North Africa, all overlain with the format of jazz and free expression.
Uman, artistic director of the Vermont Jazz Center since 1997, has built the program to a renowned venue and educational hub. He has performed with a long list of jazz masters, including Sheila Jordan, George Mraz, Jimmy Heath and many more. Uman's Convergence Project has performed together for five years, combining the virtuoso talents of Jeff Galindo, trombone, Michael Zsoldos, saxophones, Stomu Takeishi, bass, and Satoshi Takeishi, drums.
