Over the years, touring musicians cross paths, share experiences (both on stage and off), and form deep bonds, both musical and personal. Often these relationships are enduring, and the friendships that develop last a lifetime. The members of REUNION have a collective relationship built on many such experiences.
As members of world famous bands, Jim Beard, Till Broenner, Dennis Chambers, Tim Lefebvre, Chuck Loeb, and Eric Marienthal, have worked together on timeless recordings and in performances on all the major stages across the international world of Jazz.
Each has a list of impressive credits as performers, recording artists, composers, and producers. Some of the music world’s most iconic figures have enlisted their talents: Chick Corea, Stan Getz, Carlos Santana, Wynton Marsalis, Wayne Shorter, Gato Barbieri, and many more.
So it is a rare occasion when musicians such as these come together as a unit. In the summer of 2006, at the invitation of the promoters, the core of the group shared the stage as a special feature of the 15th anniversary of the Canary Islands Jazz Festival. The experience proved to be a great one for all, and led to the decision to make REUNION a regular event.
