A native of the South Bronx, trumpet master Ray Vega is one of the great innovators on the international jazz and Latin music scenes. A veteran of the bands of Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, Mongo Santamaria, and Mario Bauza, Ray has performed and recorded with Lionel Hampton, Paquito D’Rivera, Arturo Sandoval, Eddie Palmieri, and Paul Simon, to name but a few. For this special Chandler performance, Ray fronts his Latin Jazz Quinteto, presenting a highly energetic program that mixes original compositions and standards, combining elements of jazz with modern, funky, urban grooves, liberally spiced with Afro-Caribbean and Brazilian rhythms.
