Jazz 100

JAZZ 100: The Music of Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, Mongo Santamaria, Thelonious Monk

This year marks the centennial celebration for four visionary icons of music all born in the same glorious year: Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, Mongo Santamaria and Thelonious Monk.

Jazz 100 showcases both the dynamic individual artistry of each icon and the powerful unifying thread between them, which helped shape and inform the the evolution of jazz and modern music as we now know it.

This ensemble is directed by Danilo Perez, a keyboardist who, as a young man, played with Dizzy.

Jazz 100 is an incredible collaboration that includes four contemporary greats: Danilo Pérez, Chris Potter (saxophone, woodwinds), Avishai Cohen (trumpet), Wycliffe Gordon (trombone, vocals), Lizz Wright (vocals), Roman Diaz (percussion, vocals), Ben Street (bass) and Adam Cruz (drums) to reflect and pay homage to the giants of jazz history.

Diego El Cigala is regarded as the most exciting and innovative flamenco singer in the world today. Passionate, profound, and immensely proud of his Spanish gypsy heritage, El Cigala has found success in his interpretations of this distinctly Spanish art form.

Diego El Cigala has been called "the Sinatra of flamenco." With two Grammys and five Latin Grammy nominations this celebrated artist stays true to his musical heritage yet has achieved accolades with mainstream audiences around the world. His artistic journey began singing in flamenco pénas and tablaos where his artistry was recognized by world class bailaores such as Mario Maya, Farruco, and Carrasco. His earthy, exultant, and richly emotive voice marks as one of the great singers of the last century.
