JAZZ CAFE "STANDARD TIME" Sat March 21st
Tenor saxophonist Delbert Bernabela, one of the pioneers of Aruban jazz fusion, teams up with son David Bernabela on bass, Francisco Morales on piano and Niek de Bruine on drums. Together they present this recording of nine carefully penned originals. A mixture of jazz and folk. The material on the album is conversant with the blues and filled with surprises. This is Delbert's first recording on Dutch soil.
NEW ALBUM RELEASE
Coming May 10th, 2020
Delbert's 12th album project, titled “In your arms,” is a genre-bending ride through tracks reminiscent of all of DB’s albums, and more.
“It’s a mix of things that I’ve done throughout my twelve records. There’s a lot of funky instrumentals, some pop-sounding tracks, a couple slow jams, straight-ahead jazz, gospel, some vocals, lots of horns and some straight-up funk,” said Delbert. “The album is very much a mixture of some modern sounding programming along with live instruments, too. Real drums on every song mixed with programming. Definitely a cool sound.”
