Jazz at the Bechtler: Latin Jazz
LOCATION: BECHTLER MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
FRIDAY, JUNE 3 AT 6 OR 8:15 PM
June's Jazz at the Bechtler performance summons a trio of special guests to bring the sounds of Cuba, Brazil, and Latin America to life with Latin Jazz.
To do the rhythms of this music justice, the Ziad Jazz Quartet brings a talented rhythm section to the Bechtler stage. Long-time Jazz at the Bechtler fans will be familiar with Jim Brock, who brings an extensive kit of percussion instruments with him to the stage. In addition, bassist Nelson Rios and trumpeter Al Strong will be sure to add peppery brass tones on top of the luscious beats.
