Go See Makuza!

I wrote about this group a few months ago. Now, you can go see them for free, at the smoke-free Blue Room. I recommend it with enthusiasm!

From the Blue Room website:

Makuza is a Latin Jazz Ensemble, fueled by the crossover of Latin American & Afro American musical traditions and innovations. Salsa, Hard Bop, Funk, Samba, and Afrolatin drumming are the roots of Makuza's sound.

Since September 2004 Makuza has been performing in Kansas City, Chicago, and the Midwest, and recently performed at the New Mexico Jazz Festival. The group received the Outstanding Ensemble award as well as two Outstanding Soloist awards at the Elmhurst Jazz Festival in Chicago in 2005, and received an invitation to perform at Jazz Under the Stars in 2007.

A deep respect for tradition, coupled with a desire to constantly break new ground fuels this highly successful and fast moving Latin jazz sextet.

Come to the Blue Room on the corner of 18th and Vine -- where jazz grew up and lives today -- to hear the best music America has to offer.
