Thursday, April 23, 2015, Central Library, 7-9 pm
Expect April to heat up when this Chicago-based instrumental group brings Afro-Peruvian rhythms and modern jazz aesthetic to Madison. Given the band’s well-reviewed 2014 release and strong regional buzz, this show will no doubt be a highlight of the Jazz Consortium’s free concert series celebrating regional compositions.
