Father of the Mambo: The Music of Cachao Lopez

Date: 
Monday, August 4, 2014 - 6:00pm

"Mambo," translated from Kikongo (the Creole language of Cuba), means "conversation with the gods." With Afro-Cuban rhythms and other notes from this divine conversation, Cuban bassist "Cachao" Lopez (and his brother) enlightened the jazz world and brought forth the mambo. Led by bassist Carlos Henriquez, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra rocks Rose Theater with the ultimate "discarga" jam session, in honor of the late "Cachao." Wendell Pierce hosts.
