Friday Night Jazz Series: Brazilian and Latin Favorites

The CJRO Sextet, featuring Heidi Schmidt will present a tour of Latin and South America this friday at the PACE Center (Friday, October 21, 7:30 pm, Schoolhouse Theater 19650 E. Mainstreet, Parker, CO 80138 ). Tunes made famous by Stan Getz, such as Girl from Ipanema and Corcovado, as well as music Dizzy Gillespie composed, that was inspired by Latin rhythms such a A Night in Tunisia (yes, we know Tunisia is in Morocco, but don’t tell Dizzy that).

The Sextet will feature the burning tunes of the Bronx Horns (and yes, the Bronx is in New York, but stay with us here). These arrangements  of Latin and Salsa favorites will have you thinking you are way south of the border!
