Garden party with Gabriel Palatchi Trio

Final Summer Jazz Concert at The Gardens on Anderton

The Gabriel Palatchi Trio plays at the The Gardens on Anderton this Sunday

The third and final Summer Jazz Concert at The Gardens on Anderton takes place at 2 p.m. this Sunday when the Gabriel Palatchi Trio from Argentina performs a two-hour concert of exciting and upbeat Latin music.

The trio comprises Gabriel Palatchi, piano and organ; Jose Sanchez, drums and Sean Orabit, bass.

As part of the trio’s cross-Canada tour, Georgia Straight Jazz Society, in a joint venture with the Anderton Therapeutic Garden Society, is looking forward to seeing a large crowd experience the music of one of the new generation of great talented South American jazz ensembles.

The Jazz Society’s interest in this program is the presentation of world-class live jazz, whereas the event is also a fundraising opportunity for the Garden Society, and a chance to increase public awareness of the finest public gardens in the Comox Valley.

Critics have been raving about Palatchi’s music; for the last three years the band has toured throughout various parts of Argentina, Mexico and Canada, performing at important venues and international music festivals including the Coyote Jazz, Kaslo Jazz Festival, Starbelly Jam Music Festival, Caribbean Days Festival and Fiestaval Latin Festival among others.

The promotional tour for their debut CD Diario de Viaje (Travel Diary), was extremely successful, creating a buzz in each local music scene that the trio visited. The album was chosen as one of the best Latin jazz albums of the year by JAZZ FM Toronto 91.1, and is being played on radio stations all over the world.

It has been reviewed and featured on the Latin Jazz Network, Rolling Stone Magazine, The Toronto Star Magazine and Insideworldmusic.com among others.

This tour is promoting the trio’s new album, Caja Musical (Music Box).

This is your rare opportunity to spend an afternoon in an outdoor setting enjoying really magnificent live jazz.

Admission is $10, children under 14, free. Snacks and drinks will be on sale. Ample parking is available. Look for the ‘Live Music’ sign outside Anderton Nurseries, head in to the back area away from the highway, and follow the directions from the parking attendants.
