Program Notes

New Haven-based composer Jeff Fuller is widely known as a jazz bassist who specializes in Latin music. In his Afro-Cuban Suite he has assembled newly composed music and some of his older pieces into a ten-minute-long composition, which ranges stylistically from bembé to bolero, from rumba to mambo. Fuller describes it as “my sincere homage to the music, musicians, and culture of Cuba,” further stating, “Cuban music has forged a deep river of inspiration which has carried me through decades of my professional life. To me, Cuban music and American jazz are two branches of the same tree."
