Contemporary, smooth, and eclectic – three words that just begin to describe Albert Rivera, “a modern Jazz Messenger” with one of the most exciting and sought-after saxophone sounds in today’s jazz scene. His albums, Re-Introduction, Inner Peace (Turnaround Records) and his latest Back At It (Truth Revolution Records) have been warmly embraced by critics, who call Albert and his two bandmates, Luques and Zaccai Curtis, “three young artists who are part of the next wave in this jazz ritual.” His new album, Live At The Litchfield Jazz Festival, is due out in the summer of 2018 on Truth Revolution Records. Brothers Luques (bass) and Zaccai (piano) Curtis follow in the rich family tradition of jazz. The music has often been the beneficiary of sibling bonds. Look no further than the Adderley brothers (Cannonball & Nat), the Heath Brothers (Percy, Jimmy, and Albert (Tootie), the Brecker Brothers, or more recently the Roney brothers (Wallace & Antoine), the Parrott sisters (Nicki and Lisa), and the Jensen sisters (Christine & Ingrid). Jazz music has frequently been the family tie that binds. And as with the Curtis Brothers those are also siblings that recorded and performed together. Based on the brilliance of Completion of Proof, clearly Luques and Zaccai Curtis have joined that auspicious tradition.
