continued

For his performance at Hill Auditorium on April 8, the Panamanian pianist will reach back to his apprenticeship days to pay tribute to the musical spirit of Dizzy Gillespie, appropriately blending different genres and traditions as well as redoing the master's compositions in novel ways. The band he brings with him consists of players who bring diverse backgrounds to the concert: David Sanchez on tenor saxophone, Rudresh Mahanthappa on alto saxophone, Amir ElSaffar on trumpet and voice, Jamey Haddad on percussion, Ben Street on bass, and Adam Cruz on drums.    (end of article)
