Steve Pouchie Playing the Music from North by Northeast” Tonight at Don Coqui

With his latest production, North By Northeast, vibraphonist Steve Pouchie may not be scaling Mount Rushmore or dashing about in a gray suit, evading cops and deadly crop dusters, but he and his players nonetheless generate the same breathtaking brand of excitement and unpredictability that characterizes the motion picture classic made famous by Alfred Hitchcock.

The virtuosic Pouchie, who has performed in many notable New York venues throughout the years, along with his renowned players — especially Grammy nominee Wilson "Chembo" Corniel, who co-produced this album—present, in Pouchie's words, "the different shades of Latin Jazz….played with the sensitivity and precision, that only a good Latin Jazz band can achieve. Each song is experimental in one way or another." — Vicki Solá, Que Viva La Música (89.1 WFDU-FM)

This album, North by Northeast is an infinitely sophisticated recording, full of romantic allusions from literature and film. If it suggests Alfred Hitchcock, it is because it abounds in mystery and magic. — Raul da Gama Latin Jazz Network
