Natalia was recently featured in an episode of Sesión Nueva York, a documentary series about Chilean musicians living in New York, which was filmed in the Fall of 2012. The series revolved around five Chilean musicians who call New York their home; Yayo Serka, Melissa Aldana, Pablo Menares, Pablo Vergara and Natalia. The episode about Natalia aired on Chilean National Television on July 26, 2015. Click Here to view the episode.
Many Thanks to Raul da Gama of the World Music Report for a very positive review of Sueños y Delirios! Here’s a bit of what he had to say:
“…this is a disc [in] which iridescent music is transformed—with a breath, a word, a single musical note—into something quite transcendent; even spiritual.”
“…absolutely divine… sheer vivid and palpable exhilaration.”
We think that means he dug it! To read the full review, click here:
We’re quite pleased to announce that we’ll be performing at the legendary Blue Note in New York City on Friday, February 27th!

We were quite pleased to see this nice review of our September concert in Tempe, AZ appear in All About Jazz recently. Reviewer Patricia Myers had some very nice things to say about the group, praising our “flawless synergy” and “exceptional originality and style” and at one point likening our approach to that of the great Modern Jazz Quartet. We’ll take that. Many thanks to Patricia Myers and All About Jazz!

Photographer Dave Kaufman published a nice gallery of photos in All About Jazz of our performance on September 27 for the Lakeshore Music Series at The Tempe Center For the Arts. Click here to check them out. Thanks, Dave!
We’re thrilled to announce that our new release, Sueños y Delirios, will be available on September 26th, 2014! The new CD represents the next step in the evolution the trio’s work, capturing the same rich and unique sound and interplay that distinguished our first recording from four years ago, but broadened palette. We’ve explored some new territory, with longer, more complex forms in the arrangements and compositions and a wider range of Latin American and North American rhythms and styles. We’re also joined by two special guests; Chilean percussionist Yayo Serka appears on two tunes and saxophonist Michael Zsoldos lends his beautiful soprano sound to one selection. Plus, this CD has two firsts: an original composition by Jason (Vagalume) and harmony vocals by Mike and Jason!
We’ll be launching this CD with a string of very nice concerts this fall, beginning with a series of concerts out west:
Friday, September 26: Alva’s Showroom in San Pedro, CA
Saturday, September 27: The Tempe Center for the Arts, Tempe, AZ
Sunday, September 28: The Historic Fifth Street School, Las Vegas, NV
Details can be found on our schedule page. More information and further gigs to follow!
Natalia was recently featured in an episode of a very interesting music show on the Chilean Television network TVN. The show, DoRemix, devotes each episode to exploring an important song in Chilean music history. Through interviews with the songwriters, original performers, contemporary musicians and folks on the street, the show presents the historical context of the song, some biographical information about the original artists and examines the impact the song had on Chilean culture. Each episode finishes with a music video of a new rendition of the song, arranged by the musical director of the show, Sebastián Piga, and performed by contemporary musicians. The episode she appears in is dedicated to a classic romantic song by the Chilean group Los Galos, “Como Deseo Ser Tu Amor.” Natalia recorded her interview and vocal parts in February of 2013 and was very pleased to see, when the episode aired recently, that she had sung in a virtual band along side two amazing and well-known Chilean singers; Pablo Ugarte of the Band Upa! and the legendary crooner, Lucho Jara. There’s even a clip of Natalia singing a portion of one of her original songs, “Caravaneros,” during her interview, accompanied Jason Ennis.

We’re looking forward to playing this coming Sunday at the beautiful Norfolk Library in Norfolk, CT: 9 Greenwoods Road, Norfolk, CT 06058. Norfolk is a exceptionally hip town and the concert series at the Library is quite amazing.

For more information, visit their website: http://www.norfolklibrary.org. The concert is free and open to the public, but please call (860) 542-5075 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
We’re very happy to have just booked a concert for next Valentine’s Day at the Flushing Town Hall in Flushing, Queens. We’re all very proud to be working with this great organization whose mission is to support jazz performances and education in the borough of Queens. It’s especially fitting since Mike and his family just moved to Jackson Heights, making us an all-Queens-based trio! We should be perfect for the timing of the concert- what could be more romantic than La Voz de Tres on Valentine’s Day?
