The Appel Room

Nuevo Jazz Latino

30th Anniversary Landmark Concert

Jazz at Lincoln Center stands with our brothers and sisters who have been affected by the recent hurricanes. As a contribution to the relief efforts, the organization will donate $5 of every ticket sold to the Nuevo Jazz Latino concerts to help families recover from Hurricane Maria.

Back by extremely popular demand, Nuevo Jazz Latino returns to The Appel Room. This all-star ensemble features some of the greatest young leaders in Afro-Latin music today, including four brilliant Cubans and two native New Yorkers: pianist Elio Villafranca, saxophonist Yosvany Terry, drummer and MacArthur Award-winner Dafnis Prieto, genius conguero-vocalist Pedrito Martinez, trumpet powerhouse Mike Rodriguez, and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra bassist, composer, arranger, and educator Carlos Henriquez. When the group was first assembled in 2014, each musician contributed original music specifically for this ensemble. The result was an eclectic repertoire of new music that beautifully utilized the unique talents of each musician. The super-group reassembled for a sold-out week at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, and they’re now joining forces again to present new pieces and expand upon the original Nuevo Jazz Latino compositions. Each of these artists is an instrumental virtuoso and a leading contemporary composer. Their natural chemistry makes the collective seem like a well-practiced veteran group, but it’s a rare treat to get them all on the same stage. This weekend, audiences in the House of Swing will hear why Nuevo Jazz Latino is one of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s most artistically successful and well-received original programs.

Nuevo Jazz Latino is one of our 30th anniversary landmark concerts because this program is one of our most artistically successful and well received since it was first curated by Jazz at Lincoln Center in 2013. This one of a kind all-star group made up of some today’s most exciting and inspiring bandleaders comes together with new music written specifically for this show, highlighting the profound and exciting connections between jazz and Latin music.
