Amanda Martinez‘s new album Libre drops this Friday, but last week the singer-songwriter gave a sneak preview to a lucky few donors in a performance here at JAZZ.FM91.
Martinez and her band played a Live to Air concert for an exclusive audience at the Long & McQuade Performance Hall on Thursday, June 13, a week before the release of the new record.
With Libre, Martinez takes stock of her place as an artist, friend, daughter and mom with a rich, lived-in mix of African and Latin-American rhythms and musical styles. Produced by Juno-nominated Kevin Laliberte, it’s Martinez’s most eclectic recording yet.
Here was the lineup:
- Amanda Martinez – vocals
- Kevin Laliberte – guitar
- Drew Birston – bass
- Rosendo “Chendy ” Leon – percussion
- Alexander Brown – trumpet
- Donne Roberts – guitar/vocals
