You won't want to miss Gary Morgan's 20-piece Latin jazz band “PanAmericana!" on Tuesday, December 13 at Jazz Tuesdays in the Gillespie Auditorium at the NY Baha'i Center (53 East 11th Street between University Place and Broadway). There will be 2 shows: 8:00 and 10:00 p.m. Leader Gary Morgan, a native of Santiago, Chile, is a lifelong lover of Latin music with many trips to Brazil and Cuba to his credit. He started “PanAmericana!" six years ago to combine the propulsive rhythms of Latin music with the orchestral sonorities and harmonic richness of the jazz orchestra, with the addition of French horns and Latin percussion. The recent emphasis in the band has been the orchestration and arrangement of some of the wealth of material emerging from the contemporary composers of Brazil, who do not have much exposure in this country, including such major talents as Egberto Gismonti, Milton Nascimento, Hermeto Pascoal, Jovino Santos Neto and Itibere Zwarg. This is not your father's big band! “PanAmericana!" is composed of some of the finest Latin jazz musicians in New York. You won't want to miss this exciting and uplifting show! Admission is 15.00, 10.00 for students. Tickets will be sold at the door, or call 212-222-5159 for reservations and information.
