On Saturday, October 30, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. in Quinnipiac Universitys Buckman Theater the Frank J. Natale Concert series will present the internationally acclaimed drummer and composer Gustavo Cortiñas with his powerhouse jazz ensemble.  They will be performing the music of his revolutionary third album DesafíoCandente which was inspired by Eduardo Galeano's The Open Veins of Latin America. DesafíoCandentetakes the listener on a journey through Latin America and its history of colonialism, imperialism and neoliberalism. The music denounces the power structures that run Latin America and prey on its people, while celebrating the resilience, spirit, and creativity of its many diverse communities. Registration will not be required; the event is open to the public and admission is free.  

[The] magnificentDesafioCandenteis an ambitious work both in depth and breadth.DesafíoCandenteis innovative, elegant, and relevant. It is socially engaged music with themes that are simultaneously timely and timeless(Chicago Jazz Mag). DesafíoCandente features drummer and composer Gustavo Cortiñas, trumpet player Drew Hansen, saxophonist and clarinetist Artie Black, trombonist Euan Edmonds, pianist Joaquin García, and bassist Kitt Lyles. Cortiñas' music is uplifting, robust, melodic, and gets your body moving; it's an exciting blend of the artist's musical influences from jazz and Latin America, including his native Mexico"(DOWNBEAT). With a grant from the Mexican National Endowment of the Arts (FONCA), Gustavo is currently working on his fourth project as a leader: Kind Regards, featuring original songs composed of both lyrics and music by Cortiñas in an attempt to bridge gaps and community in todays polarized world.  

In the spring of 2022, the Frank J. Natale Concert Series will also present the acclaimed Japanese soprano, Yayoi Ikuno, in a recital of Romantic opera arias and art songs, and the premiere of Amazing Graces, a slave narrative for the electric guitar and electric violin at Quinnipiacs Blackbox Theater.
