It was an honor and a pleasure to be a part of Larry Harlow’s Hommy. The music, the spirit, and the audience were in sync, but mother nature cut the performance short. Hopefully, it will be staged again. Here is a link to the review in the New York Times.
On August 1, 2014, World-renowned Cuban tres and guitar virtuoso Benjamin Lapidus and his new group Kari-B3 releases his long awaited 7th Latin jazz recording and 8th as a bandleader. The album features heavyweights from the Latin and jazz worlds such as Pedrito Martínez, NEA Jazzmaster Cándido Camero, 7-time Grammy nominee Bobby Sanabria, Jared Gold (organ), Frank Anderson (organ), saxophonist Paul Carlon, NYTimes bestselling author T.J. English, trumpet sensation Greg Glassman, vocalist Bobby Harden, Ooganist Frank Anderson, reed legend Walter “Gene” Jefferson, vocalists Enid Lowe and Hiram Remón, Latin-Grammy nominee Charlie Sepulveda (trumpet), trombonist and vocalist Elizabeth Frascoia, and Chicago R&B session guitar ace Aaron Weistrop.
