Ray Vega Quintet with special guest Sherman Irby: Music of Dizzy Gillespie & Chano Pozo

Clave Con Jazz: A Celebration of Latin Jazz

With trumpeter Ray Vega and alto saxophonist Sherman Irby.

Curated by Ron McGugins, Clave Con Jazz is a three-night celebration of Latin jazz highlighting important connections between American jazz and Latin American rhythms. This opening-night performance will be led by South Bronx icon Ray Vega, a veteran of the bands of Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, Mongo Santamaria, Mario Bauza, Luis "Perico" Ortiz, Hector LaVoe, Johnny Pacheco, Larry Harlow, Pete “El Conde” Rodriguez, and Louis Ramirez, to name a few. Joining him for an evening of Dizzy Gillespie and Chano Pozo tunes is longtime Jazz at Lincoln Center saxophonist Sherman Irby, a powerhouse improviser with unstoppable chops and the sweetest tone. Don't miss this Clave Con Jazz kickoff event, and consider joining us on nights two and three for Carlos Henriquez and Elio Villafranca’s tribute to Cachao or The Mambo Legends Orchestra’s celebration of The Palladium Era.
