“Cracking Latin-jazz quintet led by 606 proprietor Steve Rubie on flute and alto saxophone…explores these Latin jazz classics in great rhythmic style”
“SAMARA” is a five-piece jazz/Latin group led by the 606 Club's own "Guv'nor" Steve Rubie on sax and flute, and suffice it to say we all think the guys in the band are just great! The pianist Neil Angilley works with Vanessa Mae, Shirley Bassey and “Down to the Bone”, Dill Katz, the bass player is visiting professor at the Guildhall, while Nic France the drummer has worked with just about everyone, including Dave Gilmore (Pink Floyd) and Bill Withers. From Belo Horizonte in Brazil, singer Luna Cohen is considered to be one of the finest Brazilian vocalists currently working in Europe. The music is an infectious blend of Brazilian Samba, jazz/Latin and Soul, and everyone has a great time... .and, by the way, it is Luna's birthday so the night will be that bit more magical.
