Latin Jazz Express "The Music of the Masters"!
Dancing Encouraged! Where Salsa Meets Jazz!
This evening is devoted to the works of the Masters of Latin Jazz:
Tito Puente, sometimes called the "King of Latin Jazz" or simply "El Rey" ("The King"), who made an indelible mark on Latin and popular culture. In addition to recording more than 100 albums, garnering Grammy nominations and Awards, and creating more than 200 compositions, Puente was and continues to be a highly revered musical legend in Latin music and jazz circles.
Band leader, arranger and composer of salsa and Latin jazz. - Eddie Palmieri has skillfully fused the rhythm of his Puerto Rican heritage with the complexity of his jazz influences: Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner as well as his older brother, Charlie Palmieri. This created an innovative sound that mixed American jazz into Afro-Caribbean rhythms, surprising critics and fans alike.
