Vocalist Michelle Manzo is as elegant as the timeless songs of her repertoire. Showing us the beauty and soul of simplicity, her performances betweeen Birdland & Zinc Bar have been a stripped-down honest affair with plenty of emotion to spare.
Grupo Miguelito returns with a “conjunto pequeno” lineup for this affair. Performing songs from a forthcoming EP, singer songwriter Michael “Miguelito” LaMorte will be joined by Ze' Luis (Caetano Veloso,Bebel Gilberto), Guy Finley (Honeycomb,God's Green Earth), and Richard Padron.
R-Status is the collective force of Cuban-born guitarist Richard Padron and alto saxophonist Benny Reid. They will be joined by Ernesto Simpson, Alex Hernandez, and Robert Rodrigez for this performance of explosive jazz with elements of every style of music as a focus.
The exact date of this concert is not known, but it occurred in the marked year around this time.
