Papo Vazquez at JALCNEA Latino Master Papo Vazquez is a visionary composer, trombonist, singer, and percussionist, whose eclectic output includes jazz, Afro-Caribbean, classical, and a wide spectrum of Latin music – sometimes performed individually, and sometimes in combination. This diverse, often theatrical repertoire is brought to life by the Mighty Pirates Troubadours band, which masterfully navigates Vazquez’ journey through Latin dance grooves, extended jazz improvisations, and slow, lushly orchestrated passages. With a special emphasis on Latin jazz, this performance will demonstrate just how hard this award-winning band can groove.

Carlos Henriquez at JALCAcoustic and electric bassist Carlos Henriquez brings an extraordinary collection of musicians to Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola to celebrate and share material from his upcoming debut album. Since performing in the first Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Festival and Competition, Henriquez has taken over the bass chair in the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, become a regular member of the Wynton Marsalis Quintet, as well as a celebrated arranger, educator, music director, and entertaining concert host. These sets feature rising star trumpeter Sean Jones, saxophonist Felipe Lamoglia, pianist Robert Rodriguez (of the Rodriguez Brothers), JLCO drummer Ali Jackson, and percussionist Bobby Allende. Henriquez is a gifted performer and composer of both jazz and Latin music, so expect a swinging blend of the two on this celebratory occasion.
