The Dizzy Gillespie Afro Cuban Experience

The Afro Cuban Experience ensemble, led by Dizzy Gillespies long-term bassist John Lee, showcase the unique rhythms and well-loved melodies (such as Manteca and Tin Tin Deo) developed by Dizzy. Their repertoire also explores the broader world of Latin-American music- the tunes that Gillespie would have been playing today. The musicians are drawn from the high-calibre pool of New York-based talent that frequent the Dizzy Gillespie Big Band and All Star groups. Including trumpeter Freddie Hendrix, saxophonist Sharel Cassity, Brazilian pianist / vocalist Abelita Mateus, drummer Tommy Campbell and percussionist Roger Squitero. They perform with energy, verve, and style, putting their own fresh stamp on a well-known genre. Their forthcoming debut album as a group, Heat, will be released shortly.
