The Jazz Bakery presents Francisco Aguabella and his Latin Jazz Ensemble
Four Nights: May 14, 15, 16 & 17, 2008
Francisco Aguabella, master conguero, left Cuba and came to the United States and performed with Peggy Lee. He has performed all over Europe, Australia, South America and all over the United States (including the White House). Francisco has enjoyed an extensive music performing and recording career and has delighted many audiences with his masterful and powerful rhythms. He has performed with many great artists such as Dizzy Gillespie, Tito Puente, Frank Sinatra, Eddie Palmieri, Cachao, Lalo Schifrin, Cal Tjader, Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson, Poncho Sanchez, Paul Simon, Bebo Valdes, and many more.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see the last great conguero. I had the pleasure of seeing him in performance just a couple of months ago, he’s incredible, I guarantee, you won’t be disappointed.
The Jazz Bakery it’s all about the music, it’s just you, the audience, and the musicians. Every seat is the best seat in the house. This musical experience is truly a unique and rare opportunity to get up close to the great Francisco Aguabella.
