Amina Figarova Sextet plays at Capital Ale House tonight at 7pm, presented by Richmond Jazz Society’s Guest Educators series.

From RJS:

Amina Figarova is one of Europe’s most talented Jazz composers and pianists.  Playing piano and composing at a very early age, Amina studied classical concert piano at the Baku Conservatory in Azerbaijan; Jazz performance at the Rotterdam Conservatory in The Netherlands; The Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA; and, was accepted into the prestigious Thelonious Monk Jazz Colony in Aspen, Colorado.

Greatly influenced by the music of Miles Davis, Horace Silver, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, and Wayne Shorter, Amina has more than a dozen recordings to her credit.  She arranges for her sextet with her husband, multi-flutist Bart Platteau, who is central to the group’s three horn frontline.   Her arrangements make the sextet sound like an orchestra!
