The Manhattan School of Music has long been a fixture of the New York music scene and was one of the first United States conservatories to acknowledge the prime importance of jazz as an art form. The Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra, led by multi-Grammy Award nominee Bobby Sanabria, boasts two separate Latin Grammy Award nominations, an exceptional accomplishment for a student ensemble. Every time they come to Dizzy’s it’s a wild new experience; their most recent performances featured innovative Latin jazz makeovers of West Side Story and classic cartoon and television music.
