Pan con Bistec
Variations on jazz come particularly from the Caribbean and most notably Cuba. Miami-based duo Pan con Bistec melds Latin jazz with original arrangements influenced by the rhythms and musical stylings from North, Central, and South America and the Caribbean, including Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, candombe, swing, bebop, R&B, and funk. Comprising Uruguayan violinist Federico Britos and Cuban flutist/saxophonist Bobby Ramirez, Pan con Bistec offers its latest, self-titled CD, which weaves an intricate fabric of distinct musical textures of original sounds and outside influences. Britos and Ramirez take their stylistic leanings from artists such as Cuban Latin jazz veterans Paquito D'Rivera and Hilario Durán, as well as Argentine Gato Barbieri, and shape them into a sonic diorama.
