DOUBLE GRAMMY NOMINEES
SAMMY FIGUEROA
& HIS LATIN JAZZ EXPLOSION
CELEBRATE THEIR 10TH ANNIVERSARY
AT  NEW YORK’S BLUE NOTE AND
TWO CONCERTS IN SOUTH FLORIDA
Renowned percussionist Sammy Figueroa and his Latin Jazz Explosion shall be celebrating their 10th anniversary with three concerts in New York City and South Florida.

10 September  – New York NY – Blue Note
15 September – Miami FL – WDNA Jazz Gallery Fine Arts Series
22 September – Delray Beach FL – Arts Garage

When legendary percussionist Sammy Figueroa (Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Brecker Brothers, Mariah Carey, David Bowie and countless others) arrived in South Florida in 2001 he discovered a vibrant Latin jazz scene, where players from Cuba, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Haiti, Colombia and Argentina create a simmering mix of multi-cultural jazz collaboration.  With the support of producer Rachel Faro and Dr. Ron Weber of South Florida Jazz, Sammy put together a band of the best players in town, making their debut at the Hollywood Jazz Festival in November 2002.

How time flies!  Since then Sammy and the band have released three critically acclaimed albums (two of which have received Grammy Nominations), toured throughout the world and developed a large, devoted fan base. Although the personnel has changed throughout the years the sound of this band has remained remarkably consistent: sophisticated jazz fusion mixed up with a lot of rice and beans.

Whether you’re in the New York area or South Florida come help Sammy celebrate his 10th Anniversary as leader of one of the premier bands in Latin Jazz today!
