Venezuelan bassist and composer Gonzalo Teppa presents his new quintet performing original music from his latest album “Away From Home.” Each composition written by Teppa is inspired by his family and his native country, drawing from the musical wells of contemporary jazz, Latin American music (Venezuelan, Brazilian, and Afro-Cuban), ballads, swing, blues, free jazz, and more. Teppa recorded the album this past June after winning the Pathways To Jazz Grant in 2018.

The Gonzalo Teppa Quintet: Gonzalo Teppa – Double Bass/Composer/Bandleader, Greg Harris – Vibraphone/Piano/Percussion, Alex Heffron – Guitar, Andrew Wheelock – Drums, and Ike Spivak – Saxophone/Flute/Clarinet

CD Release Party at Dazzle on Wednesday, January 22, at 6:30pm
