“This is a special opportunity to express my grandmother's Haitian heritage with people who speak the same language.” —Yosvany Terry
With grant support from the French-American Jazz Exchange Program, Cuban-American saxophonist/percussionist/composer Yosvany Terry and French pianist Baptiste Trotignon present a unique and exciting program inspired by the rich and diverse musical traditions that emerged from the African Diaspora in the United States and former French colonies in the Americas. Named Ancestral Memories, the project captures the rhythms, melodies, and harmonies of the Caribbean, New Orleans and French Louisiana, re-imagined through 21st century aesthetics and a jazz sensibility. The current ensemble personnel also features the
extraordinary rhythm section of Terry’s brother, bassist Yunior Terry, and drummer
Clarence Penn. Ancestral Memories’ eponymously titled debut album was released in
October 2017 on OKeh/Sony Records, followed by an East Coast tour concluding with a 4-night run at New York’s Jazz Standard. Nominated for a Grammy for Best Latin Jazz Album, Yosvany Terry’s previous album New Throned King (5Passion, 2014) was based on a similar concept and seamlessly blended modern jazz with the ceremonial music of the West African and Cuban Arara culture.
