Jazz Revelation Records Presents: Ripple Effect – A Concert Celebration
Jazz Revelation Records is student-run, artist-driven record label created to showcase the top jazz composers and performers from Berklee College of Music.
Ripple Effect, JRR’s ninth release, showcases some of the college’s top young jazz players from around the world. The featured bandleaders – Daniel Rotem, Aris Valeris, Eduardo Mercuri, and Bryce Milano – hail from Israel, Greece, Brazil and the U.S. respectively.
The prince of salsa, Nicaraguan singer and composer Luis Enrique is known for both his fiery dance music and salsa romantica ballads. His most recent recording received a Latin Grammy Award for Best Tropical Latin Album.
Enrique will perform his songs with a large student ensemble arranged and conducted by Berklee Contemporary Writing and Production chair Matthew Nicholl. The concert is produced by Grammy Award–winning bass professor Oscar Stagnaro.
Mary Black has long been considered one of the finest female vocalists in the Celtic world. An unparalleled interpretive singer with a beautiful, dynamic voice, she draws on her traditional Irish folk and ballad background to create music that soars with a contemporary edge.
She's touring in support of Stories from the Steeples, her much-anticipated first studio album in six years.
Over the course of her eight-album solo career, Berklee alumna Aimee Mann has established herself as the master of the cerebral rock ballad. With her strong, unique, deadpan vocals, she spins bitingly melodic lyrics that delve into the darker corners of human interaction and intention. Through her acclaimed solo discs Whatever and I'm with Stupid in the '90s, Aimee Mann has always been at the forefront of contemporary songwriters. The close of the millennium brought her greatest success, with the simultaneous releases of Bachelor No.
