Free video from the historic "Salsa Meets Jazz" Benefit for Puerto Rico
An assembly of Jazz and Salsa greats got together to revive the great and much-missed tradition of the Monday night "Salsa Meets Jazz" series that ran for decades at the old Village Gate in New York's Greenwich Village.
Paquito D'Rivera...Randy Brecker...Candido...salsa greats Larry Harlow, Gerardo Contino and Eddie Montalvo...David Amram...Antoinette Montague...Valerie Capers…the poets Felipe Luciano and Mariposa...and Bobby Sanabria and his multi-Grammy nominated 19 piece Multiverse Big Band were just some of the all-stat contributors.
You missed it - tickets for the benefit sold out fast at $100 a piece - but seven clips from the show are available for free viewing here:
