RG Royal Sound Orchestra Bring Back The Big Band Latin Sound With New CD Impact
February 2, 2010-New York, New York-The big band sound of RG Royal Orchestra will be celebrated around the world today as their new release Impact is released to give the jazz community a shot of adrenaline that it never expected.
The main vision of producer Recaredo Gutierrez, is to bring back good music and he said "In addition to Latin music, I love big bands," he says, "including that of Ray Conniff, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Damaso Perez Prado, and Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey. I believe in a pure sound with no electronics. My goal is to have a new orchestra play classic music for today's audience."
The 20-piece RG Royal Sound Orchestra is comprised of 13 horns and a seven-piece rhythm section that includes two guitarists and two percussionists. The orchestra performs three arrangements apiece from musical director Mike Lewis and Hilario Duran plus two from Tony Taño, Jorge Arronte and Raul "Lulo" Perez. Duran, Arronte and Perez split the piano duties throughout the album.
Standards like “Hotel Califorinia”, “My Way” and “Can’t Help Falling In Love” have never sounded so fresh and invigorated. People will not get what they expect when listening to Impact but the unexpected is the very factor that makes this music so exciting. It was the intention of the creators to bring a certain atmosphere and familiarity to these great songs but the goal here is to reinvent them with the RG Royal Sound Orchestra using the big band sound injected with a Latino influence. The outcome is pleasing and it will not only lend the earned respect to the tunes themselves but to the jazz genre and its broad scope and reach that is always available. The band took the music’s capabilities and adapted the innate versatility of the genus beautifully within each composition.
RG Royal Sound Orchestra and KC and The Sunshine Band will appear February 13th, 2010 at 8:00pm At Bank United Center at University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida.
