Eugene Uman’s Convergence Project

  • Saturday June 10, 2023 @ 7:30 pm
  • Vermont Jazz Center
  • In-person & live-streamed event

Eugene Uman is the director of the Vermont Jazz Center & performs as a pianist in numerous projects.

His annual June concert is a representation of a year’s worth of composing & collaborating with various musicians & an opportunity for him to assemble a dream band that manifests his vision & unites his musical influences.

  • Eugene Uman – piano/compositions
  • George Garzone – saxophone
  • Jeff Galindo – trombone
  • John Lockwood – bass
  • Francisco Mela – drums

Uman’s energetic playing & writing style is flavored with the Latin rhythms that he has absorbed during his tenure living in Colombia, where he initiated the jazz studies programs at la Universidad de EAFIT & el Colegio de Música de Medellín.

Several of his compositions employ forms & grooves adapted from Colombian music, such as cumbia, pasillo, puya, bambuco, and currulao.

They are also strongly influenced by his bebop mentors: Sheila Jordan, Howard Brofsky, Mike Longo & Jimmy Heath, and by the sounds of his youth when he played in rock & blues bands.

Uman’s compositions draw from a vocabulary of modern jazz, hard bop, rock, soul, Latin American rhythms & gospel; listeners can expect a “convergence” of the music he loves in a mash-up of styles where groove is king.

Masks are optional, and light refreshments are available.

Tickets $20-50 sliding scale general admission in-person
Donations for the live stream are welcome.
