Sonora 51 is a latin jazz band from Hamburg, Germany founded by Pianist Matthäus Winnitzki. The group plays original compositions written by the bandleader and features some of the finest musicians around. The music of the band combines the rhythmic complexity of afro-Cuban traditions with the harmonic and structural diversity of modern jazz. These two blend into a dynamic sound, which leaves a lot of space for the individuality of each soloist. That combination of tradition and modernity, a vivid, energetic sound and a wide range of expression defines the music of Sonora 51. Band members: Dan Gottshall: trombone Frank Delle: saxofone Matthäus Winnitzki: piano Nené Vásquez: percussion Hanjo Polk: drums Leandro St-Hill Montejo: flute on Charanga Mozambique.
