Relax and Take 5! with free, live jazz in the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Kogod Courtyard. Stop by the Courtyard Café for refreshments. For added fun, borrow a board game to play during the concert.
From the days of ragtime when Fats Waller talked of "the Latin tinge," to the early collaborations of Dizzy Gillespie with Cuban masters Chano Pozo and Machito, Afro-Latin rhythm has been an important part of the musical lexicon of jazz. In this concert, the Tony Martucci Quintet explores this rich tradition with original music and jazz standards, featuring Luis Hernandez and Jeff Antoniuk on saxophone, John Lee on guitar, Tom Baldwin on bass, and Tony Martucci on drums.
