Hot Latin Nights!
Saturday, February 11, 2017
As one of America’s foremost Latin jazz ensembles, the Mambo Kings, along with the RSO, take the audience on a journey through the Pan-American experience, from the sultry melancholy of Astor Piazzola and the Afro-Cuban jazz of Tito Puente, to the rhythmic playfulness of jazz great Dave Brubeck and the pop strains of The Beatles, featuring original orchestral arrangements and compositions from the U.S., Perú, Argentina, Cuba, and Puerto Rico.
The Mambo Kings, together since 1995, have rapidly earned a national reputation for their explosive blend of Afro-Cuban rhythms and jazz improvisation. Since their orchestral debut in 1997 with the Rochester Philharmonic, the Mambo Kings have appeared at the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival and in Pops concerts with orchestras in Baltimore, Vancouver, Detroit, Dallas, Naples, and Portland, performing original compositions and arrangements.
