Gregorio Uribe Big Band

Gregorio Uribe Big Band is a 16-piece ensemble that combines enticing Colombian rhythms such as Cumbia with powerful jazz big band arranging techniques. Their live performances consist of a remarkable combination of trumpets, trombones, and clarinets soaring over an amazing percussion section and the leader of the band dancing to the beat while rocking out on his accordion. The band has a unique combination of some of New York’s top musicians from different backgrounds such as Argentina, the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Colombia. GUBB is reminiscent of the vintage Colombian Big Bands of the 50s and 60s such as those led by Lucho Bermúdez and Pacho Galán. However, through Gregorio’s compositions and arrangements this ensemble gives the big band format, a young, fresh, and modern concept that is not found elsewhere today.
