In recent years a tidal surge of extraordinary Caribbean musicians has transformed the American jazz scene. And near the beginning of that wave, from the Dominican Republic, was pianist Michel Camilo. A virtuoso whose lightning two-handed runs and bravura rhythmic attack turn his performances into joyous celebrations, Camilo came to prominence shortly after settling in New York City in 1979.

He has been widely recognized for his astounding technique, with a doctorate from Berklee, a Latin Grammy Award for the 2000 Verve album Spain and a 2004 Grammy in the Best Latin Jazz Album category for Live at the Blue Note. Camilo’s high-profile collaborators over the years include Dizzy Gillespie, Michael Brecker, Wynton Marsalis, Gary Burton, Tomatito, Anthony Jackson, Dave Weckl and dozens more.

Bassist Lincoln Goines is a Latin jazz master, having spent years with Dave Valentin and others. And prodigious Puerto Rican percussionist Giovanni Hidalgo was featured on Camilo’s recent EmArcy album Mano a Mano. Join us for an action-packed evening with one of the most fiery of all keyboardists
