BIMA proudly presents a special evening of music as Marina Albero premieres new original work at the Buxton Auditorium. Renowned for her versatility and virtuosity, Marina was named distinguished Resident Artist of Seattle’s 2021 Earshot Jazz Festival.
Multi-awarded pianist, composer, and educator Marina Albero is a captivating performer born in Barcelona and based in Seattle since 2015. Albero’s playing is an absolute celebration of life, her spirited performances are intelligent, uplifting, and delightfully engrossing. Albero deftly draws on a lifetime of music tradition, from her native Barcelona in classical and early music as well as flamenco, to Cuba and Son Cubano, to American jazz.
This trio concert features the great northwest bassist Jeff Johnson and the outstanding tablas player Anil Prasad with whom Albero explores the thread of improvisation from the cradle of music to contemporary repetoir from around the world as she seamlessly flows between the hammered dulcimer and the piano.
