¡VAYA! 63 Led by renowned percussionist composer, arranger, and educator Bobby Sanabria, the 21-piece multi-Grammy-nominated Multiverse Big Band has been hailed by Downbeat magazine as a "force of nature." Uniquely known for its versatility, the orchestra can seamlessly transition from complex concert repertoire to swinging big-band dance music. On the heels of the Grammy-nominated West Side Story Reimagined double CD, Bobby Sanabria and his Multiverse Big Band will pay tribute to the mecca of all Latin dance halls, the legendary Palladium Ballroom, where the fusion of big-band mambo with jazz reigned supreme. Kick off the fifth season of ¡VAYA! 63, the Atrium’s popular Latin dance party, with this stellar band.  

 

Presented in collaboration with the NYU Music and Social Change Lab

““… (Mr. Sanabria) expands the possibilities, moving the sound of bands like that of (Puente, Machito), with all the heft and intricacy and clave-based dance rhythm, into the harmonically oriented sophistication of current New York jazz players. It’s New York up and down, and back and forth across the last century, from the street to the mambo palaces to the conservatories.””
– Ben Ratliff, New York Times
“"Bobby Sanabria is equally adept at the swinging big band sounds of drummers Buddy Rich and Louis Bellson along with another boyhood hero, fusion pioneer Billy Cobham and timbale titan Tito Puente."”
– Bill Milkowski, Jazz Times
