Jazzmobile Presents – Bobby Sanabria Quintet – Recorded Live in the Bronx
September 11, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
BOBBY SANABIRA, DRUMS/PERCUSSIONS. A native Nuyorican from the South Bronx, 8X’s Grammy nominated as a leader, drummer, composer, arranger, educator BOBBY SANABRIA is considered one of the most articulate musician-scholars of jazz and Latin jazz. Called by JazzTimes magazine a, “…force of nature…,” he was the drummer for Mario Bauzá, the legendary creator of the genre. Tenures with Tito Puente, Dizzy Gillespie, Mongo Santamaria, solidify his place in Latin jazz and jazz history. His new CD, the Grammy nominated West Side Story Reimagined, a Latin jazz interpretation of Bernstein’s immortal score performed by his 21 piece Multiverse Big Band has been hailed a masterpiece.
