There’s just something about New Orleans drummers you don’t find anywhere else, and you’ll recognize that special feeling the moment you hear drummer extraordinaire Herlin Riley. One of the hardest-grooving, most infectiously energetic drummers alive, Riley breaks down every perceived line between art and pure entertainment.

 

Tonight’s concert will continue Riley’s exploration of the ways in which Latin jazz intersects with the sounds of his hometown. Featuring Cuban percussion genius Pedrito Martinez, prolific trumpeter (and fellow New Orleanian) Nicholas Payton, and New York's lively, go-to bassist Russell Hall, the event will showcase classic New Orleans repertoire reimagined and spiced up to include Cuban music traditions.

 

There’s always a homecoming energy when Riley, a longtime member of Wynton Marsalis’ small groups and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, returns to the House of Swing. Be a part of it when Cuba meets New Orleans in The Appel Room.
