International Jazz Day in Miami Beach April 30

Apr 30, 2014 07:30 PM - 10:30 PM

Two-time Grammy winner Will Calhoun brings his jazz trio to Miami Beach on April 30, as we join in the world-wide celebration of International Jazz Day. Famous for his drumming with Living Colour, Will has returned to his jazz roots in last year's release, “Life in This World,” featuring such luminaries as Marc Cary, Charnett Moffett, Ron Carter, Donald Harrison, and Wallace Roney. Tonight he is accompanied by Brian Jackson on piano and Luques Curtis on bass.

The ARAYA-ORTA LATIN JAZZ QUARTET is a group comprising two pairs of brothers; Michael Orta (Piano), Nicky Orta (bass), Ramses Araya (percussion) and Carlomagno Araya (drums). The chemistry shown on stage by these four artists is truly outstanding, not only because of their level of musicianship or because the fact that they share the same blood, but also because they have a history that goes back 20 years.

The show is free for all ages. The Araya-Orta Quartet will open the festivities at 7:30 PM, and the Will Calhoun Trio goes on at 9:00. Located in Collins Park, 2100 Collins Avenue, it is right behind the Bass Museum, which will feature the artwork of Ghanaian artist El Anatsui, for which occasion Will has composed new music.
