LATIN JAZZ @ MONDO Series with 2 Time Grammy Award Percussionist RAPHAEL CRUZ & His QUINTET in Concert
The acclaimed Grammy Award winning percussionist Raphael Cruz and His Quintet will perform on Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 8:00pm at the LATIN JAZZ @ MONDO concert series, located at MONDO, 426 Springfield Avenue in downtown Summit, NJ. You are surrounded by inspiring fine art at this intimate and cozy venue as you enjoy a concert experience with the best of Latin jazz artists from NYC and beyond. Raphael Cruz is joined for this special concert by accomplished music artists; Ole Mathisen on sax, pianist Alex Collins, Donald Nicks on bass and Diego Lopez on drums.

Multi-percussionist and Grammy winner Raphael Cruz was born in the Dominican Republic. His formative years and exposure to countless strong music influences led Raphael to a level of excellence that few possess. He is probably the best kept secret in Latin jazz. Raphael has long been recognized by his fellow musicians as a gifted percussionist and bandleader, possessor of exquisite sensitivity and impeccable timing, a veteran who has shared both the stage and the recording studio with such legendary performers as Mongo SantamarĂ­a, Ray Barretto, George Benson, Paquito DRivera, Herbie Mann, McCoy Tyner, Bette Midler, Flora Purim, Harry Connick Jr., and Chaka Khan.

His album production, Bebop Timba, won him the prestigious Grammy award for musical excellence in 2004. It won the coveted prize for the Best Latin Jazz Recording.
His most recent endeavor; Time Travel, is equally satisfying and includes quite an impressive guest list of stars: Sonny Fortune, Claudio Roditi, Dave Valentin, Raleph Vowen, Danilo Aviles, Stefan Held, Manuel Valera, Sergio Brandau, Pablo Vergara, Greg Murphy, Roman Diaz, Giovanni Valladares, Diego Lopez, Alexis Zayas, Victor Prieto, with special appearances by vocalists Pedro Martinez, David Oquendo and Chico Alvarez. The result has been sheer magic.

Raphael's work as an innovative leader and producer is not yet finished. More projects are on the horizon. To his credit he has surrounded himself with a crew of equally adept musicians who form the nucleus of his working unit. Collectively they conjure up feelings that are refined and deep, hot and sensual.

Concert tickets are priced at $20 in advance / $25 at the door. Advance reservations & more info are also available by calling the Teatro Si box office at 908-301-9496 or purchase tickets in person at MONDO in Summit. We recommend enjoying a fine meal at one of several fine restaurants in downtown Summit before or after the show. Event proceeds benefit programming efforts at Teatro Si, a 501(c) 3 not for profit organization.
