Nueva Manteca, founded in 1983, consisted of different line-ups throughout the years. They havealways been top of the billin both the Dutch and the international Latin Jazz scene and they played all around the globe. Being an established musical sensation in the US and South America, the band is now back in all its glory. A new, breathtaking Latin Jazz band with a fresh line-up.
The founder of Nueva Manteca is Jan L. Hartong who started the band in 1983. In the 90’s, journalist Raul Rico of the authoritative Latin Beat Magazine, praised the group as “Europe’s finest in Latin Jazz”. Many have followed him over the years, and not without reason. The group belongs to the top of the Latin scene as can be judged from USA radio playlists which regularly show a top ranking position for Nueva Manteca’s CD’s.
Nueva Manteca creates a synergy between Cuban music and Jazz music “pur sang”. The group is not “just another good latin jazz band” as there are so many these last few years, they are unique in performance, style and repertoire. Their –mostly own –arrangements and compositions show inventively, creativity and most all a musical spirit that’s really something!Nueva Manteca is the living example that the sum is more than the parts. And considering the parts resemble an international calibreand equally convincing soloist capacities of the individual member expect a sizzling and swinging show! Nueva Manteca shows what musical synergy is all about.
