Harlem Jazz Shrines Festival: Latin Double Bill (Wed. 5/7)

Harlem Jazz Shrines Festival: Latin Double Bill – Aruán Ortiz and Manuel Valera. Aruán Ortiz’s amazing work is an instrumental re-interpretation of concepts and motifs inspired from iconic architectural works. These extraordinary artists push their creativity beyond sonic limits as they musically explore masterpieces like Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia replete with its arabesque spires and presence of alchemy.

Manuel Valera and The New Cuban Express, Jose Marti en Nueva York Featuring vocalist, Sofia Re

The New Cuban Express sextet interprets the poems of Jose Marti’s Versos Sencillos, written in New York in the late 1800s by this Cuban national hero, revolutionary philosopher and poet. Through contemporary jazz and Afro-Cuban music, the arrangements interweave contemporary post bop harmony, ancient percussion of the African batá drums, chamber music-like sections, chants, call-and-response techniques originating in Africa.

Cabaret seating with food and drink for sale.

Tickets are $10 and a $3.00 processing fee for a total of $13.00. Tickets can be purchased here:

    I suggested to some of you last night that we might consider First Fridays, a regular jazz series at the Community Church of Greenwich Village on Bleecker St. Shows are the first Friday of every month, and are FREE. I have been to a few and they have been very good.
