Leader of Cuban Big Band Orchestra Zarabanda, Elspeth Savani combines the traditional Cuban conjunto format and a modern arrangement aesthetic for a sound evocative of Old Havana. Her 2007 CD Gallo Que Canta featured guest artists Jovino Santos Neto, Marco de Carvalho and Anthony Blea and received much critical acclaim including being nominated for "Best Emerging Artist" by Earshot Jazz. With her new CD Flights of Mind-Pensamientos en Vuelo, Elspeth brings her seasoned vocals (sung in English, Spanish and Portugese) and solid composition chops to the forefront, Savani once again steps forward into new musical territory infusing the music with elements of contemporary pop and modern jazz.
"Singer Elspeth Savani's new release, a Latin jazz exploration of mostly original compositions, might surprise some who might be familiar with her charanga work and association with Orchestra Zarabanda. What shouldn't be a surprise is the high degree of artistry that Savani continues to weave into her work. Flights of Mind / Pensamiento En Vuelo is a relaxed gem of a session Savani's lovely, soothing voice at times with just a hint of melancholy is just what the doctor ordered This one, folks, is a much needed respite from the daily grind. Very highly recommended."
