Magos Herrera & Beat Kaestli @ Drom, Dec. 7th

Magos Herrera & Beat Kaestli- for the Grateful Web

Mexico's Magos Herrera is considered one of the most beautiful voices and the most active vocalist of the contemporary Latin American jazz scene and Esquire Magazine quotes "Beat Kaestli's emergence as a vocalist bespeaks a life full of experience. Like Jazz itself, his willingness to adapt and improvise has given rise to a unique young man and artist." Magos and Beat met in New York City a year ago and immediately felt a connection in each other's music and as artists in this vibrant Metropolis. Soon they performed as guests at each other's live shows and recordings. Now, Magos and Beat will bring their exciting mix of Jazz, R&B and Latin rhythms to Drom NYC, featuring vocal duets and songs from their current solo projects.

Magos Herrera:
A dazzling, accomplished singer-songwriter and known for her beguiling rhythmic scatting, inflected with soulful Latin-Andalusian phrasings, Magos Herrera is known for her signature sound that elegantly blends her classic jazz styling with Mexican, Cuban and Brazilian melodies. Based in NYC since 2007, she has recorded with Saxophonist Tim Ries for the Rolling Stones Jazz Project and for contemporary composer Paola Prestini for John Zorn label. For over 10 years Magos has performed in international arts centers, at festivals and concert halls such as Lincoln Center, NYC, Millennium Park in Chicago, Knitting Factory, Teatro de la Ciudad de Mexico, Sala Galileo and Galilei in Madrid among others.

Magos will be releasing her 6th CD spring 2009 featuring guitarist Lionel Loueke and pianist Aaron Goldberg produced by Tim Ries, saxophonist of The Rolling Stones.

Beat Kaestli:
Beat Kaestli moved to New York from his native country of Switzerland, receiving a scholarship to the Manhattan School of Music (BM) and graduating from the Aaron Copland School of Music with an MA in 2008. Since the release of his 2005 Jazz debut "Happy, Sad and Satisfied", he has toured the world and his unmistakable blend of Jazz, classical and contemporary vibes thrills audiences everywhere. In New York he has performed in renowned clubs, such as The Blue Note, Birdland, The Bitter End, The Jazz Standard, The Stone and Sweet Rhythm, performing with Jazz greats, like Esperanza Spalding, Clarence Penn, Joel Frahm and Victor Prieto.

Beat is now putting the finishing touches on his latest CD "Far From Home – Dedicated to European Song" scheduled to be released in 2009.
