The Appel Room

Nuevo Jazz Latino

 
 
 

On a program that may impel those of the opinion that 21st century jazz doesn't concern itself with melodic values to question their assumptions, Nuevo Jazz Latino — convened under the auspices of Jazz at Lincoln Center's new A Side, B Side Series — presents an all-star ensemble of a decidedly Afro-Cuban orientation, whose members have written new works specifically for this freshly-assembled collaboration. Songwriters include Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra bassist Carlos Henriquez, a Bronx native, and four brilliant Cubans: pianist Elio Villafranca, saxophonist Yosvany Terry, drummer (and MacArthur Award winner) Dafnis Prieto, and conguero-vocalist Pedrito Martinez.
