Described as “. . . a cross-cultural collaboration that spins & grooves” by the New York City Jazz Record, Eugene Marlow's Heritage Ensemble is an imaginative and tight quintet that churns out an intoxicating brew of in-the-pocket grooves and reverent soulful performances of original compositions and arrangements in various jazz, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, and neo-classical styles. The Heritage Ensemble has recorded three albums. Its most recent is "A Fresh Take" (MEII Enterprises 2011), a follow-on to "Celebrations" (MEII Enterprises 2010). Both albums have received critical acclaim in domestic and international press. Later this year Eugene Marlow's MEII Enterprises indie label will release "Obrigado Brasil" a set of 10 Marlow originals inspired by the music and culture of Brazil. The Heritage Ensemble's January 27th encore performance at the Nuyorican will include charts from "Obrigado Brasil" and its last two albums. The quintet includes: award-winning founder/leader/arranger/pianist Eugene Marlow, multi-Grammy and Latin-Grammy nominee drummer Bobby Sanabria, Phi Beta Kappa bassist Frank Wagner, NEA Performance grantee saxophonist Michael Hashim, and Nuyorican virtuoso percussionist Cristian Rivera.
