Event description

Description

Price range: $49 - $65 + booking fee.

Dinner show doors open at 6pm, supper show doors open at 9:30pm

The Afro-Cuban Experience ensemble, led by Dizzy Gillespie’s long-term bassist John Lee, showcases the unique rhythms and well-loved melodies (such as ‘Manteca’ and ‘Tin Tin Deo’) of Gillespie’s oeuvre of Cu-Bop which he developed with Chano Pozo in the 40s and 50s.

Their repertoire also explores the broader world of Latin-American music- the tunes that Dizzy would have been playing today.

The musicians are drawn from the high-calibre pool of New York-based talent that frequent the Dizzy Gillespie™ Big Band and All-Star groups, such as trumpeter Freddie Hendrix, saxophonist Sharel Cassity, Brazilian pianist / vocalist Abelita Mateus, drummer Tommy Campbell and percussionist Roger Squitero.

They perform with energy, verve, and style, putting their own fresh stamp on a well-known genre.
