Vinyl Envy Presents: Noedy Jazz Trio
For fans of: Miles Davis | Clark Terry | Buena Vista Social Club
8:00pm - 10:00pm Doors at: 7:00pm
Noedy Hechavarria Duharte comes from Santiago de Cuba, a city Cubans affectionately call “la tierra caliente” (the warm land). In Cuba, Noedy studied at the Alvaro Variel Conservatory in Havana and played in various bands the Tropicana in Santiago de Cuba and the National Cabaret in Havana. He participated as one of the actors in the acclaimed film El Benny directed by Jorge Luis Sánchez and released in 2006.
After he arrived in Quebec, he was selected at the School of Music at the University of Sherbrooke in the Jazz Music Performance bachelor program, which he completed in 2013. In 2014, he moved permanently to Victoria to stay with his family. Noedy remains active on the jazz scene of Montreal since his arrival in Canada in 2008 but has now established himself as a unique and original upcoming jazz musician on the West Coast of Canada.
After his arrival in Canada, Noedy took the opportunity to study with internationally renowned musicians such as the pianists Danilo Pérez and Aruan Ortiz in New York City and the saxophonists Chad Lefkowitz-Brown, René Bolduc, Frank Lozano and Ralph Bowen. He also performed with jazz musicians such as John Pizzarelli, Alexander Brown and Rafael Zaldivar.
Noedy composes original music that is often described as highly poetic, complex with strong harmonies. His music is influenced by contemporary jazz music, Afro-Cuban and Latin rhythms as well as francophone music from Quebec and France.
For the show at Vinyl Envy, Noedy will be accompanied by Phil Albert at the bass and Cyril Lodja at the drums, two active musicians in the local and national jazz scenes.
