The Wild Detectives presents Latin Jazz Night
As part of The Wild Detectives broad search of those music genres widely known but not always properly exposed, our backyard will turn into a Latin Jazz Venue, celebrating this unique music expression in different ways.
The night will feature live music by Christian Valdés Quintet. Valdés comes from a family of renowned musicians of the Colombian salsa scene, in which he already stood up as a pianist before turning 19. He leads the Christian Valdés Quintet, one of the best jazz combos at UNT in Denton, a five-piece band revisiting some of the most exciting Latin Jazz compositions and other less known works.
Following the live muse, there will be a special screening of Calle 54, a documentary featuring some of the greatest artists of our time: Tito Puente, Chucho Valdés, Bebo Valdés, Michel Camilo, Chano Domínguez, Eliane Elias, or Jerry González.
