Jorge Glem & César Orozco: "Stringwise" Album Release

Virtuoso Venezuelan cuatro player Jorge Glem, has joined forces with Cuban/Venezuelan pianist, composer, and arranger César Orozco, to record their first album as a duo entitled Stringwise, released worldwide on February 6, 2019. After working together in several projects for many years while living in Venezuela, these long-time partners in music have reunited again now in New York City and decided to put together this unprecedented and original duo. On this album, both performers explore their instruments to the fullest by mixing the rhythmic richness and energy of traditional Latin American genres such as Venezuelan joropo, merengue, and Cuban son with a repertoire of worldwide renowned masterpieces from pop and jazz. Stringwise is also the first album recorded only with a Venezuelan cuatro and piano. This particular instrumentation, along with the constant presence of jazz elements, such as improvisation, creates a homogeneous and coherent sound despite the varied mixture of songs and genres involved in the recording. The end result is a fascinating journey full of rhythms, melodies and harmonies that listeners will enjoy through 7 covers, one piece of Venezuelan folklore, and 3 original songs, all produced and arranged by both Glem and Orozco.
