Thursday, May 10, at 12:10pm, a trio of Music School faculty members – Tom Robinson (jazz piano, saxophone), Scott Kiefner (bass), and Tim Gilmore (percussion) – performs a concert entitled “The Latin Touch: Music of Brazil and Cuba.” The combination of jazz improvisation with the rhythms of Latin America opened up an entire genre of music. This lively jazz trio celebrates this fusion of influences with music from Brazil, Cuba and more. Come enjoy the fiery dance rhythms of Cuba as well as the beautiful harmonic complexities of Brazil all within the free improvisatory framework of Jazz.
