Mark Weinstein musical biography
Jazz Flutist Mark Weinstein plays World based Jazz and Post-Bebop with world-class musicians rooted in Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, African, Jewish and Indian traditions. A Latin Jazz innovator, Mark was among the first jazz musicians to record with traditional Cuban rhythm sections. His classic recording, Cuban Roots, released in 1967 with Mark on trombone and Chick Corea on piano transformed Latin Jazz, as have his Latin Jazz recordings on flute, including Cuban Roots Revisited (1999), Algo Mas (2005) and Con Alma (2007). His Brazilian jazz recordings include Tudo de Bom (2003), O Nosso Amor (2006) and Lua e Sol (2008). His Jewish albums Shifra Tanzt (2002) and Milling Time (2001) recorded in Kiev Ukraine, demonstrate the breadth of his musical conception as do his straight ahead albums, Seasoning (1996), Three Dueces (2000) and his newest album, Straight, No Chaser (2008). His recent recordings include such notables as Jazz master Kenny Barron, Cuban pianist Omar Sosa, and Latin Jazz legend Mark Levine, Brazilian guitarist Romero Lubambo, Downbeat Rising Star Dave Stryker percussionists Cyro Baptista, Francisco Aguabella and Pedrito Martinez, bassists Santi Debriano, Nilson Mata and Mike Richmond as well as guitarists Jean Paul Bourelly, Vic Juris, Paul Meyers, Brad Shepik and Ed Cherry and drummers Cindy Blackman, Victor Lewis, Paulo Braga and Cecil Brooks III. Mark has performed as a sideman with Cal Tjader, Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente, Herbie Mann, Maynard Ferguson, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis, Clark Terry, Joe Henderson and many others.
