"Sam Reider, composer, musician and band leader of a compact acoustic big band, is for me the 21st Century’s Folk Duke Ellington." - Northern Sky Magazine
Perhaps some of you remember the charming ace accordion player Sam Reider, who was here in 2018 with his band The Human Hands. One of the things we always say to musicians after their concert, is “let us know if you have any other interesting projects that could work on the Lane Series.” Well it turns out, Sam did have another project in the hopper, and boy – were we interested when we heard it was with the virtuosic Grammy nominated and Latin Grammy winning Venezuelan Cuatro player Jorge Glem. Brooklyn Cumana is the result of a mash-up of culture, creativity, and connection: an ode to traditions near and dear to each of these consummate musicians: a blend of the driving dance rhythms of Venezuela, and the American sounds of bluegrass and jazz. It is something original, new, yet stunningly familiar and fun. If you love intricate acoustic music played by musicians with monster chops: don’t miss this one!
