Often featuring the works of Tito Puente, sometimes called the “King of Latin Jazz” or simply “El Rey” (“The King”), The Latin Jazz Express is a seven piece band dedicated to keeping the sounds and spirit of this music alive, Larry Moses’ “Latin Jazz Explosion” is what happens when the sophisticated sounds of jazz mix it up with the red-hot Latin rhythms of Cuba, Puerto Rico and the streets of NYC.
The name Cuboricua was inspired by the music of Cuba and Puerto Rico. Cuboricua identifies with the rhythms and melodies of the caribbean; Salsa, Son, Rumba, Bomba, Plena, as well as Merengue. The veteran musicians of this conjunto, to their credit, have performed and recorded with world renown artists such as Celia Cruz, Pete “El Conde” Rodriquez, Eddie Palmieri, Monguito “el unico”, los Kimbos, and the New Swing Sextet to name a few. This conjunto creates a traditional/modern energetic sound by placing the interlocking rhythmic figures of percussion and Cuban Tres under a smoothly swinging melody to create a new sound!
The Falcon is located at 1348 Route 9W in Marlboro.
