The Original MARK OF ZORRO - accompanied by an all-star Quintet

Swashbuckling trumpets and flamenco romance mark this musical adventure through the 1920 Mark of Zorro, capturing the mood of 19th century Spanish California with a Flamenco-Tango-Salsa-Mariachi-Jazz score performed live. Blending action, adventure, romance and comedy in a new way, Douglas Fairbanks’ portrayal of Zorro, the black-clad outlaw-hero, was to set the standard for all future versions of the film. Fairbanksʼ daring yet graceful stunts made him a cinematic legend.

Capturing the humor of the film, Brendan Cooney’s original score borrows freely from a variety of Spanish and Latin influenced musical genres from Flamenco to Tango to Salsa.

Brendan Cooney (Piano) plays in the West Philadelphia Orchestra, the Rhinoceri Trio. He scores for silent films under his project Not-So-Silent-Cinema.

Patrick Hughes (Trumpet) plays in the West Philadelphia Orchestra (WPO), Bobby Zankelʼs Warriors of the Wonderful Sound, and has toured the world with Melody Gardot.

Alban Bailey (Guitar) plays in the free-jazz experience Inzinzac, the up-and-coming tango band The Oscuro Quintet, and the Gypsy-jazz quartet Octomonkey.

Josh Machiz (Bass) plays in Twelfth Night band, TJ Kong & the Atomic Bomb, Charles Ellerebee’s Matrix 12:38, F! and many other groups. He is a man about town.

Nezih Antakli (Percussion) plays percussion in the West Philadelphia Orchestra. He has toured Europe, Turkey, Mexico, Argentina and the US.
