Latin Jazz Concert - La Familia Sextet
Join the Austrian Cultural Forum New York on November 17 at 7 PM for the very best in New York-style Latin Jazz! Admission is free. RSVP and proof of vaccination is required.
La Familia Sextet is a Latin Jazz ensemble founded in 2004, consisting of Willie Martinez (drums and vocals), Misha Tsiganov (piano), Jennifer Vincent (bass), Renato Thoms (percussion), Maximilian Schweiger (saxophone) and J. Walter Hawkes (trombone). The music they make is a perfect example of how the marriage of Afro‐Caribbean rhythm and the harmonic vocabulary and improvisational nature of jazz, continues to remain fresh, exhilarating and timeless.
The program will include original compositions and arrangements of Willie’s, as well as those of the members of the ensemble. The baritone saxophone and trombone frontline is a unique treatment in this genre, and combined with the infectious rhythm section, smokes to the very last note!
Venue: Austrian Cultural Forum New York
