Buena Vista Social Club Special with CHEMBO CORNIEL

Let's celebrate spring with gorgeous Latin Jazz music by Chembo Corniel, called “the bright light of latin Jazz” by Latin Beat Magazine. Chembo honed his skills at The Harbor Conservatory for the Performing Arts in New York and at the prestigious La Escuela Nacional de Arte in Havana, Cuba under the direction of the great Chucho Valdés. 

Chembo received a GRAMMY NOMINATION by NARAS IN 2009 for “BEST LATIN JAZZ ALBUM” for his 2009 CD release entitled Things I Wanted To Do. This is a well-balanced Latin Jazz group that incorporates many rich traditions, such as writer Aurora Flores states:  “a sprinkling of be-bop, a touch of swing with a dollop of bomba, rumba, tango and danzón topped with ‘un chin’ de charanga.” Currently he is performing with famed musician Larry Harlow at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami. 

His touring credits are as long as his performing credits.  Chembo has toured with many major artists throughout Europe, Asia, North & South America, and the Caribbean.  Television credits include an appearance on the “Bill Cosby Show” He will be performing with his Grammy nominated quintet

Artist Press: 
“Chembo Corniel is the consummate contemporary percussionist…whose technique is like adding hot spices to a cold salad and the blend of this group of musicians can make me sing forever.”
– Grady Tate, Jazz Vocalist

“Corniel’s group wisely explores works from their musical peers, finding a balance between the past and present of New York Latin Jazz.”
– Chip Boaz, Latin Jazz Corner

“This is wonderful work from top to bottom, and I can’t remember a newly released Latin-Jazz album I’ve enjoyed this much. It’s energetic but heavily romantic and furtively old-fashioned.”
– Marc Meyers,

“This CD will surely be met with critical acclaim for its ability to transcend yet incorporate so many genres and styles of Jazz and Latin music.”
– Cathy Gruenfelder, Jazz Improv Magazine
