Concert Title: Nancy Ruth - Sangria Jam
Description: Direct from Spain: Vocalist/ Composer Nancy Ruth - Sangria Jam.
Nancy Ruth's latest release ‘Sangria Jam’ is a musical journey recounting her travels and life in Spain. Combining her influences of jazz, latin and flamenco, she says: “I write what flows freely… I’m not trying to create a fusion, I just play what I feel. I’m a product of my experience and surroundings.”
“Nancy Ruth, a powerful and talented singer, combines together jazz, flamenco and Latin rhythms in a natural way, creating a fresh genre that fits into all three idioms.” – Scott Yanow, Los Angeles Jazz Scene
Vocalist/ composer Nancy Ruth has an incredible story about how she moved to Spain on her own from Canada. Following her instincts, she fully integrated into Spanish culture. She wrote an album all about that experience called ‘Sangria Jam’.
As Nancy puts it, “Sangria Jam refers to the way my loves of jazz, flamenco, and latin rhythms come together, as well as my mixed European bloodline, which in part traces back here to Spain. Sin prisas, pero sin pausas…this recording has taken its own time and course, just like a typical day here in Spain, where for all the plans you may make, life leads you around unexpected corners. The idea is to ride the wave… enjoy the phrase, devour the moments, and notice the magic that catches you off guard”.
