Flutist, composer, arranger, producer, educator, and business owner Andrea Brachfeld, a graduate of the High School of Music and Art and the Manhattan School of Music, has recorded ten CDs as a leader, spanning styles from Latin jazz to charanga jazz, straight-ahead and devotional music. Some of the guest artists on her CDs include Wallace Roney, Rufus Reid, Wycliffe Gordon, Mike Longo, Paul West, Winard Harper, Bill O’ Connell, Oscar Hernandez, Steve Turre, Pedrito Martinez, and Hilton Ruiz. In 2017 she was awarded a grant from Chamber Music America and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation to compose a new jazz work, which appeared on her 2018 CD, “If Not Now, When?”, and she has since released two more projects. She currently tours with her own group, Andrea Brachfeld and Insight, and with Santi Debriano & Arkestra Bembe. (Photo credit: Nick Carter)
