Grand Baton is the perfect mix of electronica, world and rock music. They borrow from the original drum beats that produced the greatest variety of styles from the Caribbean over to the rest of the World. In the Caribbean started the Latin music of Cuba, Santo Domingo, Puerto Rico, Trinidad, and the Reggae (and its succession, drum n'bass, dub...), and the Zouk and Socca, and Calypso, and Kompa, all together producing Reggaeton, Dancehall, Dubstep... out of the Drum!
Jorge Sylvester Ace Collective:
The ACE [Afro-Caribbean Experimental] Collective is a group of improvising musicians created and led by saxophonist/composer/arranger Jorge Sylvester. An extension of the ACE Trio (alto saxophone, electric bass and drums), the ACE Collective includes three additional independent rhythmic and melodic elements; the voice, trumpet and piano expanding its harmonic colors, its scope of sound and its textural capacity. The music is original and draws from the Afro-Caribbean Diaspora, jazz and the free music art forms.
