The Carlos Henriquez Project - Dizzy's Club Coca Cola
Through November 17, 2018 - New York

Bassist and composer Carlos Henriquez is one of the first truly bilingual musicians, a virtuoso in both jazz and Afro-Latin traditions. Henriquez has been a member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra since he was only 19 years old, and New York Latin Culture calls him "the most important Latin jazz artist in New York City today, the heir to the legacy of Tito Puente." The Bronx native has been a phenomenon since high school, back when he was playing with greats like Puente, Eddie Palmieri, and Celia Cruz, and he is now emerging as one of Latin jazz's most compelling composers, bandleaders, and music directors. Tonight's show is the debut of his newest project, a program curated entirely by Henriquez to explore new angles of the Latin jazz continuum. As always, it will be a lively, insightful, and technically marvelous marriage of established traditions and cutting-edge possibilities.
