Album Notes

Inspired by the music of Argentina, ‘Alturas’ combines influences from classical, latin and tango to create a unique blend of haunting melodies with jazz solos. 

'Alturas' have been performing as a group since 2009.
The group started as a duo with Gaye Thomas - flute and Jane Andino - piano.
It has over the years grown to become a quintet, performing throughout Eastern Australia.

Their debut CD, Café con Tango, released in April 2013 was well received with regular airplay. Alturas’s latest CD, sin palabras is to be launched on 1st May, 2015.

ALTURAS sin palabras is a stunning collection of contemporary tango-influenced music. This instrumental CD is filled with dark moody tangos with soaring jazz saxophone and piano solos.

It also includes some gorgeous pieces from Venezuela and Brazil with subtle suggestions of tango as well as some Piazzolla and little known masterpieces.

Gaye Thomas: flutes/bandoneon
Inge Courtney-Haentjes: violin/viola
Greg Gibson: saxophones/clarinets
Jane Andino: piano
Stan Valacos: double bass
