Biography

Pianist Mariah Parker’s all-star Indo Latin Chamber Jazz Sextet features Paul McCandless, Grammy Award-winning woodwind master and co-founder of the world-renowned ensemble Oregon; Matthew Montfort, founder and leader of the world fusion ensemble Ancient Future and pioneer of the scalloped fretboard guitar; Ian Dogole, stellar multipercussionist, bandleader and collaborator with Ancient Future and Hamza el Din; and the virtuoso string section with Kash Killion, cellist and bassist with the Sun Ra Arkestra, and Jim Hurley, violinist with Queen Ida and Richie Blackmore.

According to Latin Beat Magazine, “Parker and friends blend the rhythmic syncopations of Latin jazz music with the entrancing, asymmetrical meters of East Indian rhythms resulting in first-class world music.” Paul Liberatore of the Marin Independent Journal says they “fuse Latin rhythms with influences from South America and India with a dash of straight-up American jazz… an intoxicating blend of East and West.”

Pianist and santurist Mariah Parker has just released her second recording of original compositions, “Indo Latin Jazz Live In Concert,” on Ancient-Future.Com Records. For this concert, Mariah adds chamber music to her mix. Her all-star Indo Latin Chamber Jazz Sextet features Paul McCandless, Grammy Award-winning woodwind master and co-founder of the world-renowned ensemble Oregon; Matthew Montfort, founder and leader of the world fusion ensemble Ancient Future and pioneer of the scalloped fretboard guitar; Ian Dogole, stellar multipercussionist, bandleader and collaborator with Ancient Future and Hamza el Din; and the virtuoso string section with Kash Killion, cellist and bassist with the Sun Ra Arkestra, and Jim Hurley, violinist with Queen Ida and Richie Blackmore.

According to Latin Beat Magazine, “Parker and friends blend the rhythmic syncopations of Latin jazz music with the entrancing, asymmetrical meters of East Indian rhythms resulting in first-class world music.” Paul Liberatore of the Marin Independent Journal says they “fuse Latin rhythms with influences from South America and India with a dash of straight-up American jazz… an intoxicating blend of East and West.” This chamber variation of the ensemble with its emphasis on strings will explore new compositions as well as rearrangements of existing work.

In 2009, Mariah Parker launched her Indo Latin Jazz Ensemble with a sold-out debut concert at Yoshi’s in Oakland, California. Mariah’s new release for AncientFuture.com records, “Indo Latin Jazz Live in Concert,” captures the magic of that first performance, as well as subsequent Northern California concerts at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, the Throckmorton Theater in Mill Valley and a studio session at Bob Weir’s TRI Studios in San Rafael. These multi-track live recordings were painstakingly mixed and mastered over a seven-year period by veteran Ancient Future producer Matthew Montfort.
