It was a treat to once again bring in the New Year at BMHC Lab playing with Bobby Sanabria & Sexteto Ibiano. The abundance of love in the air was tangible and sometimes overwhelming. The Bronx Music Heritage Center is committed to preserving and promoting Bronx music, cultivating Bronx artists, spurring neighborhood revival, and providing free cultural programs for the community. The Bronx is, and has been, home to many great musicians of just about every genre.
The band boasted several historical jazz and Latin-jazz masters!

Bobby Sanabria & Quarteto Aché played at Clement’s Place in Newark NJ on Friday October 14, 2016. In tribute to the late Dr. Clement Alexander Price, who was the founder and director of the Rutgers Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience, Newark’s city historian, and a devoted fan of jazz, Clement’s Place features live music every second Friday of the month. It has very good natural acoustics and is a warm room with an intimate setting and helpful and friendly staff. This photo was taken at the end of a magical, musical, historical and memorable evening!
Participating in the first International Jazz Day festivities at the United Nations in New York City on April 30, 2012 was a marvelous and unique experience. This photo of yours truly was taken by bandmate, saxophonist and friend Peter Brainin at sound-check the day before. We both played in Bobby Sanabria‘s Quarteto Aché for the “Latin Jazz” segment of the evening. Candido Camero and Shiela E were featured artists with the quartet. The video of the entire show is quite inspirational.
