SALSAMBA LATIN JAZZ QUINTET
Salsamba is a Latin Jazz Quintet that fuses authentic Latin-American rhythms with the harmonic and melodic sophistication of contemporary American jazz. Based in Pittsburgh, Salsamba performs at clubs, festivals, and colleges throughout the United States. The group has opened for many national and international stars such as Latin jazz king Tito Puente, guitarists John Scofield and Stanley Jordan. The group, capable of many musical moods, entertains its listeners with percussive and melodic improvisation of the highest quality. Salsamba, larger than the sum of five musicians, remains committed to both traditional integrity and daring innovation. Co-leaders are music director and guitarist Eric Susoeff, and conga player George Jones who are backed by multi-saxophonist and flutist Eric DeFade, bassist Jeff Grubbs, and drummer Thomas Wendt. Now in its 37th year, Salsamba proves itself to be an enduring creative collaboration.
