about

The Rhythmagic Orchestra is a collaboration between acclaimed jazz producer Benedic Lamdin – aka Nostalgia 77 - and Hugo Mendez of World-renowned tropical music collective Sofrito, based on their shared love of jazz, Afro-Cuban, Latin and tropical sounds.

The band comprised a young crop of Londons finest jazz musicians and a team of Cuban percussionists. Comprising members of the Nostalgia 77 Octet, , Jazz Jamaica, the Heliocentrics and Ska Cubano, together the players combine years of experience with innumerable jazz and Latin greats, and had the chops to lay down a session that would have made the dancers at the Palladium ballroom proud. The finished album features a selection of classics of the jazz and Latin canon from the ‘50s, with new compositions that stand up proudly alongside.

Paying tribute to the giants of Afro-Cuban jazz like Dizzy Gillespie, Chano Pozo and Machito; combining traditional arrangements with Cuban bata drums and a fresh outlook on the Latin jazz sound, all cooked up in 21st century London, the album continues a great musical tradition and adds its own flavour to the melting pot of jazz and non-western music.
