Additional Information

Edmar Castaneda fell in love with the Colombian harp as a boy growing up in Bogota. But when he moved to the U.S. with his family at age 16 (as he told National Public Radio), Edmar found that "in high school here, they have bands – they didn't have harps. And then I wanted to play jazz. So I went to col­lege playing the trumpet, and it was great, because I learned all the jazz improvisation, and I just passed it to the harp.” Edmar has added his masterful technique and exploratory improvisations to the music of artists ranging from Lila Downs to Paquito D’Rivera; he partnered with four–mallet vibraphonist Joe Locke for the 2009 album Entre Cuerdas. This Jazz Standard return engagement coincides with this unique musician’s latest CD, Double Portion, featuring Gonzalo Rubalcaba (piano), Miguel Zenón (alto saxophone), and Hamilton de Holanda (mandolin).
