The never ending journey of the music that make us move.

U.S.A. TOUR CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN

A journey inspired by all the music that, in one way or another, makes us move. From the echoes of flamenco in Madrid and Cuban songs in New York,  through the Caribbean and down the Andes, soaking up folklore all around us, we follow the rhythm to the southernmost tip of the Americas, and back home.

With our backpacks full of music and stories to tell in our own way.

This is our never ending journey.

Repeated spins of the album unveil its layers of excellence, from Roe's rambunctious piano on Sunny to Whitaker's pulsating bass lines on On Green Dolphin Street to Dobbins' crashing drums on Donna Lee. Throughout it all Choi's violin remains a constant and dominant presence like the transcendent shimmer of stars in the blackest of skies.

ALFONSINA Y EL MAR

Maureen Choi Quartet is much more than jazz and latin music. Their captivating live performance consists of original compositions and arrangements of trational Spanish and Latin American pieces. Maureen is actually one of the few violinists in the world who is able to blend the virtuosity of classical music with improvisation and driving Latin rhythms.

The Group was born in the fall of 2012 when Maureen arrived in Spain. A virtuoso on the violin, professor at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, she became passionately committed to the rich traditions and sounds of music in Spain.

Ida y Vuelta, the last album of the quartet, is the result of this journey featuring some of the most prominent Spanish musicians of today like Javier Colina on double bass and Pepe Rivero on piano.

The diverse backgrounds of the rhythm section are paramount to the highly original and fresh sound of Maureen Choi Quartet. Daniel García Diego (Spain) is a flamenco jazz pianist and on award-winning musical director. Mario Carrillo (Spain) eclectic double-bassist graduated from Berkleee College of Music, brings fresh perspectives on traditional music with his arrangements for the Quartet. Michael Olivera (Cuba), one of the most sought after drummers in Spain, rounds up the quartet blending modern jazz and Afrocuban drumming.

The group is currently on tour presenting their latest album, Ida y Vuelta, and their next projects include collaborating with the dancers of the National Ballet of Spain.
