Latin Jazz in the City: A Jam Session

Thursday, October 4, 2018
6 PM
Event Oval, The Diana Center

The influence of Afro-Cuban music on jazz goes back to its nineteenth-century origins and New Orleans but Latin Jazz is, like Salsa music, primarily a New York City phenomenon. It emerged in the 1940s from the interactions in the city of Cuban immigrant musicians such as Machito, Mario Bauzá, and Chano Pozo with proponents of the bebop style of jazz, particularly Dizzy Gillespie, himself a migrant from South Carolina. This concert and jam session celebrates this wonderful music and the creativity and immigration and mixing often produces.  Limited seating. $10 charge.  Pre-registration required; please click here to register through Eventbrite.
