Neff Irizarry playing guitar

A night of Contemporary Latin Jazz Guitar

Description

Wednesday 28 September, 2022

Doors 6pm for 6.30pm start (UK time)

Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre (BGLT)

Neff and his all-star group featuring Graeme Flowers, Davide Mantovani and Davide Giovannini will present an action packed night of progressive Latin jazz steaming with Puerto Rican “Sabor” and a Nordic cool called “Sisu.” 

“Neff Irizarry has embarked down a path traveled by few guitarists in contemporary jazz and certainly contemporary Latin jazz! To execute all the montunos, guajeos, necessary harmonizations, and to solo with clarity and fire is a tall order but Neff is certainly up to the task.”
