Jazz at the Bechtler: Latin Jazz

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. 

Get to know Al Strong, Jim Brock, and Nelson Rios: 

Trumpeter Al Strong has enjoyed performing for artists such as Brandford Marsalis, Aretha Franklin, Clay Aiken, and Linda Eder. He has also lent his trumpet playing to an array of talent including The Foreign Exchange, Yazarah, Soul Understated featuring Mavis 'Swan' Poole, and Big Daddy Kane. 

Jim Brock brings an extensive kit of percussion instruments with him every time he takes the Bechtler stage. Brock is noted to have performed alongside Paquito D'Rivera, Dave Valentin, Alex Acuna, Dave Valentin, and Arturo Sandoval.
