Chembo at the Jazz Caf,
March 12-13


Detroit: Jazz Caf hosts 2010 Grammy nominee, Wilson Chembo Corniel Jr, & his Latin Jazz Quintet, for 4 sets of Latin Jazz, March 12 and March 13, 2010, at 8:30 PM and 10:30 PM, in Detroits premier Jazz club, Jazz Caf at Music Hall.


Born in Manhattan and raised in Brooklyn, Corniel learned his percussive craft from master drummers Tommy Lpez, Patato, Little Ray Romero, and Cachete Maldonado. After a long stint in the 1980s with Bobby Rodrguez & La Compaia, Corniel performed with virtually everyone, including: Tito Puente, Machito, Hilton Ruiz, Willie Coln, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Chucho Valdes, Grady Tate, Buddy Montgomery, Jane Bunnett, Angela Bofill, Dave Valentin, and Larry Harlow.


Chembo honed his skills at The Harbor Conservatory for the Performing Arts in New York, and La Escuela Nacional de Arte in La Havana, Cuba, under the direction of the legendary Chucho Valdes. Corniel currently teaches percussion at SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music.


Corniel blends the rich textures and kinetic energy of Latin Jazz with rich Afro-Caribbean traditions to create a breathtaking hybrid of Jazz, Latin and Caribbean flavors that still touch on Post Bop and even funk.


The lineup for the Jazz Caf gigs include: Frank Fontaine, Aruan Ortiz, Carlo DeRosa, and Vince Cherico.

The Jazz Caf is located at the Music Hall, 350 Madison Avenue, Detroit. Call 313-887-8500 for details. Tickets are $27 (plus $3 preservation fee) available at Music Hall Box Office or at www.ticketmaster.com
