Dazzle presents the Gabriel Santiago Project on Saturday, December 2 at 9 pm.
Born in Brazil (1980), in 2010 ASCAP Young Jazz Composer Award Winner Gabriel Santiago is a Composer/Arranger/ Acoustic and Electric Guitar Player with 14 albums (including CDs and DVDs) released. Called by JazzTimes Magazine “a young master at both the acoustic and electric guitars” and his compositions defined as “stunners”, Santiago holds a Doctoral Degree in Music Composition from the University of Texas at Austin, where he won the 2013 Outstanding Dissertation Award and the 2010 Eleanor A. Stribling Award for Excellence in Jazz Studies. His solid background also features studies with jazz masters Pat Metheny, Adam Rogers and Maria Schneider.
Santiago has collaborated with a wide variety of artists including Esperanza Spalding, Chris Potter, Stefon Harris, John Clayton, Terence Blanchard, Janek Gwizdala, Carmen Bradford, André Mehmari, Romero Lubambo, Odair Assad, Gilson Peranzzetta and Recording Engineer Master Rupert Neve, being invited to be the first artist to record with Neve’s first-ever line of microphones. Gabriel has been composing music for a wide variety of ensembles (ranging from Symphony Orchestra to Chamber ensembles, Big band to Jazz Combos), styles and media including Film, TV, and the Internet. His music is fresh and carries all of his influences ranging from Brazilian Music to Jazz and Classical Music.
Designed especially for Dazzle’s stage, Gabriel performs Brazilian contemporary music, original compositions, and some personal takes on a few bossa nova classics.
This is a non-holiday music show (we know there are some of you out there looking for these).
