The Latin Side Of Horace Silver: Conrad Herwig w/ Guest Michel Camilo

Blue Note Jazz Club is proud to welcome back trombonist CONRAD HERWIG with THE LATIN SIDE OF HORACE SILVER program - the seventh iteration of his "Latin Side" franchise, spotlighting the music of jazz legend Horace Silver (who recently passed away in June 2014). The project will be recorded live each night and later released on Half Note Records in 2015.

Since 1998, Herwig's "Latin Side" franchise has been focused on reimagining seminal jazz musicians' compositions by showcasing those compositions within the framework of Afro-Cuban and Afro-Caribbean rhythms. Past projects include the GRAMMY® nominated The Latin Side of John Coltrane, Another Kind of Blue-The Latin Side of Miles Davis, and The Latin Side of Wayne Shorter, as well as Sketches of Spain y Mas and The Latin Side of Herbie Hancock. Many of these albums have featured various special guests, ranging from Eddie Palmieri and Randy Brecker to Paquito D'Rivera and Dave Valentin. All of the albums have been released on Half Note Records.

Herwig's latest "Latin Side" release, The Latin Side of Joe Henderson featuring Joe Lovano, is scheduled for September 16 release on Half Note.

In constant demand as a sideman, Herwig has been a featured member in the Joe Henderson Sextet, Tom Harrell’s Septet and Big Band, and the Joe Lovano Nonet (featured as a soloist on Lovano’s Grammy Award winning “52nd St Themes"). Conrad also performs and records with Eddie Palmieri’s “La Perfecta II” and Afro-Caribbean Jazz Octet, Paquito D’Rivera’s Havana-New York Connection, the Mingus Big Band (often serving as musical director, and arranger on the new 2007 Grammy nominated-"Live at the Tokyo Blue Note"), and the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band (Jon Faddis, musical director) among many others.

Herwig is a recipient of performance and teaching grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. He is currently Professor of Jazz Trombone, Jazz Improvisation, and Jazz Comp/Arr at Rutgers,The State University of New Jersey. Conrad was elected to the Board of Advisors of the International Trombone Association for a second time in 2006.

One of the most in-demand jazz educators, Conrad Herwig is a Conn-Selmer clinician and performs exclusively on Bach Stradivarius trombones.


A pianist with a brilliant technique and a composer that flavors his tunes with Afro-Caribbean rhythms, Michel Camilo's musical language is an expressive combination of his Dominican Republic musical heritage and a rich, intelligent use of jazz harmonies and textures. Mr. Camilo’s chart-topping recordings and compositions have earned him numerous awards including GRAMMY® and LATIN GRAMMY® awards, GRAMMY® nominations, as well as an Emmy® award. His compositions have been performed by some of the top jazz and Latin jazz artists including Dizzy Gillespie, Manhattan Transfer, Tomatito and Paquito D’Rivera. Mr. Camilo is the recipient of an Honorary Doctorate from Berklee College of Music, the Crystal Apple from the City of New York, and his native country’s highest civilian honors.


Igor Butman, saxophone virtuoso, bandleader, club owner and television host, is Russia's number one jazz personality. Born in 1961 in Leningrad (now St.Petersburg), Igor Butman started playing the clarinet at the age of 11. In 1976 he entered the Rimsky-Korsakov College of Music, where during his second year he dropped the classical clarinet for the jazz saxophone. Besides being taught by the remarkable musician and brilliant teacher Gennady Goldstein, he took unofficial lessons from nightly broadcasts of jazz from 11: 15 p.m. to midnight on Voice of America.

In 1983, Igor Butman played in Oleg Lundstrem`s big band - the best one in the USSR. Next year he was invited by Nick Levinovsky to join the most well known jazz group "Allegro" and played with them for three years. In the Soviet Union, a country of over 300 million people, Igor was known as the best tenor saxophonist, placing first in the Soviet Critics' Polls and recording many albums for Melodiya.

Igor's big sound and boyish exuberance have earned him standing ovations and many new fans, and his US solo career has moved straight ahead. He led his own group with Rachel Z. at Boston's leading Jazz club, The Regattabar, and has been featured soloist with the Billy Taylor Quartet, the Walter Davis Jr. Quartet and the Monty Alexander Quintet. He appeared on "The Today Show", "Good Morning America" and numerous other international programs.

Butman`s marvelous coalescence of soul, sound and technique drew praise from American President Bill Clinton, one time tenor man, at a state dinner hosted by Vladimir Putin at the Moscow Kremlin. Clinton stated, that Igor Butman is "may be the greatest living jazz saxophone player, who happens to be a Russian."
