LATIN: Latin Jazz, JAZZ: Latin Jazz
Spontaneity and fine musicianship paired with no-holds-barred passion and fiery rhythms comprise the key elements that make popular Atlanta Latin Jazz band Wild Rice one of the most exciting bands on the scene. Wild Rice truly redefines jazz with addictive beats inspired by the music of Brazil, Venezuela, Cuba, and Puerto Rico, among other tropical countries. Perhaps the best description of the bandâs music comes from the groupâs founder Daniel Padrón who aptly characterizes the music as âa celebration of life.â
Now in its 15th year, Wild Rice is one of the longest-running bands in Atlanta. The group is comprised of six respected and sought-after professional Atlanta-area musiciansâDaniel Padrón (band leader/founder, piano), Paul Poovey (trumpet), Jason Matthias (saxophone), John Hancotte (bass), Reece Harris (drums), Gaurav Malhotra (percussion). When first formed, Wild Rice was a jazz quartet featuring a female vocalist but over the years the group has morphed with the times and is now primarily an instrumental band that welcomes vocalists on certain arrangements. The unique and uncommon band name "Wild Rice" comes from one of Daniel Padrónâs original compositions of the same name. This upbeat yet melodious piece is about a lively and passionate multi-cultural wedding ceremony and melds many different music styles together including African and Latin. The name seemed fitting for the band as well since its music brings all cultures together.
One of the elements that set Wild Rice apart for the crowd is that most of the compositions are original pieces created by the bandâs creative force Daniel Padrón. Having been born in Caracas, Venezuela but raised in the States Daniel's musical perspective is unique and knows little boundaries. Daniel says, "Each tune is a journey where you start at home, go in different directions and different places but always have a sense of return, a sense of everything coming back together." The music has been described as "distinctive" and "spirited" with "blistering grooves that stir the imagination." One thing is for certain: Wild Rice's dynamic rhythms stimulate the senses and quite simply force you to get up and move your body to the contagious tempos.
A long-time fan favorite at festivals, local gathering places, wedding receptions, private parties and corporate events, Wild Rice also performs live at some of Atlantaâs most well-known events such as wildly-popular Inman Park Festival and others. More performance information can be found on the bandâs website www.wildrice.net.
In June 2008 Wild Rice finally released its first-ever recording - "Tell Me More About Spain." This highly-anticipated debut album features 14 peppery Latin-flavored tracks; all but one of the songs are original compositions by Daniel Padrón. The buzz about the album is overwhelmingly positive and rave reviews are sure to follow.
Most are hard-pressed to categorize the Wild Rice sound but all agree that the catchy melodies and solid, infectious Latin tempos inspire people to move, dance and enjoy life.
