The Pedrito Martinez Group
Afro-Cuban beat jams + album release party
Pedrito Martinez is the heartbeat of Latin jazz in NYC. He’s a world-class Afro-Cuban hand percussionist with hundreds of recordings under his belt and the Havana street cred to boot. He’s also lent his traditional Rumba and Latin folklore skills on six Grammy-nominated albums. Not having released his own studio album 'til now, fans of this Cuban virtuoso can finally have a sigh of relief. Rumor has it he’s also lined up some special guests for the big release party. Reserved barstool seating. Please note that conversation during the show is strongly discouraged. Seating is pre-assigned and family style, but sight lines are clear and sound is excellent. There is a full menu and bar available for extra cost. Seating type is subject to change without notice.
"The more you listen to him, the more you realize he is, almost impossibly, both a cosmopolitan entertainer and an authentic folklorist."
