This spectacular ensemble, which brings together the best jazz players from the DC Metro area, teams up with acclaimed Cuban jazz pianist, Chuchito Valdés for a concert of lush Latin music. In the past, this group has delighted Hylton Center audiences with the swinging sounds of Sinatra, the glory of gospel, and the nostalgic tunes of the Great American Songbook. This year, they transport you to the hot, sultry nights of our southern neighbors with the sizzling sounds of Latin jazz. Artistic director and alto sax virtuoso Jim Carroll's long and distinguished career has included performances with the likes of Michael Jackson, Nancy Wilson, Maynard Ferguson, Billy Taylor, Woody Herman and His Thundering Herd, and the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra.
