Got Tickets Yet? Countdown to showtime:
Formed in 2008 by trombonist/composer/arranger Jamie Dubberly, Orquesta Dharma is comprised of some of the very best Latin and jazz musicians in the Bay Area. The ensemble is solidly in the tradition of such legends as Poncho Sanchez and Cal Tjader, but also looks forward with a fresh approach in both the original compositions and arrangements by Dubberly. Their album, Road Warrior
, was voted "2011 Next Generation Latin Jazz Album of the Year" on the Latin Jazz Corner blog/site.
"The Northern California-based trombonist/composer/arranger/educator Jamie Dubberly displays good vibes via the up-tempo ambiance and brilliantly tight arrangements of “Road Warrior,” his debut as bandleader and record producer....... a distinctively refreshing and powerful sound" - Rudy Mangual, Latin Beat, April 2012
"Dubberly's broad 'bone sound and arranging/composing skills, along with key contributions from his large cast of collaborators, help make Road Warrior a fun listen from start to finish. Hopefully, it won't take as long to make the follow-up" - Dan Bilawsky, allaboutjazz.com (December 2011)
"Orquesta Dharma displays high musicianship, plenty of spirit, and an understanding of both swinging jazz and Latin music. Their brand of Afro-Cuban jazz is quite infectious, and succeeds both as dance music and as creative Latin jazz" - Scott Yanow (famed jazz author and critic for Downbeat, Jazz Times, and author of 10 books about jazz)
"Este es sin duda uno de los mejores albumes de Jazz Latino en lo que va corrido del siglo XXI"
(This is undoubtedly one of the best albums Latin Jazz as far this century) - DJ HECU , salsatimbacali.com
