BAI Music Presents:

 

CHICO ALVAREZ

& THE PALOMONTE AFRO-CUBAN BIG BAND

 

Big Band Music Is Alive And Well In NYC!

BAI Music presents an exciting outdoor concert of  Afro-Cuban Jazz & Latin American Music at the Worldwide Plaza featuring the colossal sound of Chico Alvarez & The Palomente Afro-Cuban Big Band. Performances will take place on the plaza near the water fountain.

 

“Chico Alvarez is a time-traveler. His voice rises as if from old wax records. His diction and intonation have the sweet quality of old Cuban Soneros. On the other hand, the band is slammin' very much in the here and now.”

- Luis Moreno, Yahoo Latin Jazz E-Group
