Event Details

JazzBuffalo, in association with Pausa Art House, presents Steinway artist Elio Villafranca as part of the Jazz 100 Festival honoring the 100th Birthdays of Ella Fitzgerald, Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, and Mongo Santamaria!  On this night, the focus will be on Dizzy Gillespie and Mongo Santamaria.  Villafranca is at the forefront of the latest generation of remarkable Cuban pianists, composers, and bandleaders that for several years has been making major creative contributions to the international development of modern jazz. In the 2010 Grammy Awards, he was nominated for Best Latin Jazz Album of the Year, for his performance, composition, and co-production in the album Things I Wanted To Do by Chembo Corniel. "Villafranca emotes an expressive, emotional quality enhanced by his technically brilliant approach to the keyboard and his rhythmically complex original compositions..." Villafranca challenges the boundaries of Jazz by fusing it with the syncopated nature of Afro-Caribbean music from Puerto Rico, Haiti, and Congolese rhythms of Makuta and Tambor Yuka, as it is called in his home town of Pinar del Rio, Cuba.  Villafranca will be joined by special guest Brownman Ali, the highly acclaimed trumpeter from Brooklyn/Toronto of Guru's Jazzmatazz fame and one of the most sought-after trumpeters today.  Ali was a recipient of the 2002 Canadian National Jazz Award for Jazz Composer of the Year, as well as, runner-up recipient for Jazz Trumpet Player of the Year.   The event will also feature Cuban-percussionist Vladimir Espinosa.  Rounding out this all-star ensemble will be former Ahmad Jamal bassist Sabu Adeyola bass and the highly regarded Sean Jefferson on drums.  An event not to be missed!
