The Latin Peppers are a relatively new group that are already creating a buzz. Comprised of musicians with many years
performing experience throughout the North Coast, the Peppers are led by Jimmy Durchslag on trombone, who also does the arrangements.
The group plays classic and contemporary Latin Jazz and dance music. Jimmy has appeared with numerous Latin bands including local favorites
Ponche and Kachimbo. He teaches the Latin ensemble at the annual Lark Music Camp in Mendocino. Orlando Morales plays congas, timbales
and percussion. He has been a stalwart of the Latin scene in the SF Bay Area for many years. Rounding out the group are Damien Roomets on bass
and Tim Randles on piano.
The Latin Peppers repertoire ranges from John Coltrane to Tito Puente, Buena Vista Social Club and Mongo Santamaria,
all with a compelling rhythmic feel that showcases tight ensemble playing and soulful improvisation.
