VIVO, the latest band for Warren Wiegratz, Milwaukee’s dean of smooth jazz, is decidedly Latin American. Their sophomore album, This is the Time, is all original material, rich in samba and tango. As might be expected from his history with Streetlife and Sweetbottom, Wiegratz flaunts his multi-instrumental prowess, though staying lower key in consort with VIVO’s more subtle approach.
Warren Wiegratz, Pam Duronio & Tim Stemper combined their creative passions to form a lively & contemporary jazz·pop bossa·samba music ensemble called VIVO. Although Warren is famed for his saxophone work, you’ll also have the opportunity to experience his flute & melodica talents in VIVO, lending a very international flair to some of the Spanish, Portuguese & French songs that Pam delights in singing and that Tim enjoys coloring with his rich guitar chords and rhythms.
