Get ready for a high-energy tribute to the Latin jazz legacy of trumpet legend and bebop pioneer John Birks “Dizzy” Gillespie as Bronx-born bassist, composer, and longtime Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra veteran Carlos Henriquez takes the Sixth & I stage with his ace octet. With a style combining currents of ’60s-era hard bop, Afro-Cuban salsa, classical music, and more, Henriquez is an ideal explorer of Dizzy’s own wide-ranging songbook, which, in addition to straight-ahead standards like “A Night in Tunisia” and “Salt Peanuts,” includes seminal Afro-Cuban jazz compositions like “Manteca” and “Tin Tin Deo.”
