A Fusion of Afro-Cuban music and Contemporary Jazz
Tucson Music Hall
Saturday, March 12, 2016, 8pm
Sunday, March 13, 2016, 2pm
Albert-George Schram, conductor
A fascinating journey through the music of Latin America and the U.S. From the sultry melancholy of Astor Piazzolla and the burning Afro-Cuban jazz of Tito Puente, to the rhythmic playfulness of jazz great Dave Brubeck and the pop strains of The Beatles, Mambo Kings will be your guide on a Latin jazz tour of the Pan American experience, featuring music from the U.S., Perú, Argentina, Cuba and Puerto Rico. With music that soars over sheer rhythmic joy, the famous and celebrated Mambo Kings are enjoying great success as a leading Latin jazz ensemble, and have rapidly earned a national reputation for their explosive blend of Afro-Cuban rhythms and jazz improvisation. Since their debut in 1997 with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Mambo Kings have appeared with the Detroit Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, The Cleveland Pops, Dallas Symphony, and many more.
“If major-league arrangements of high-voltage Latin music is your forte, you’ll definitely enjoy Mambo Kings…they were hot, full of energy and excitement.” – Naples Daily News
“After the last number, Tito Puente’s “Oye Como Va” (arr. Delaney), the Vancouver audience clamored for more.” – reviewVancouver
