On The Corner of Bourbon, Malecón & Broadway A Musical Intersection of New Orleans, Havana & NYC

This show brings together three cities that have been focal points in the evolution of the music known as Jazz:  New Orleans, Havana and New York. Hosted by multi Grammy winners Arturo O’Farrill & The Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, the show features the great New Orleans pianist, NEA Jazz Master Ellis Marsalis, patriarch of New Orlean’s great musical family. At the same time it is also a meeting of two of New York City's most creative, accomplished and mischievous arrangers – O’Farrill and slide-trumpet virtuoso Steven Bernstein, along with two of the city's most exciting and innovative large ensembles the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra and the Hot 9’s.  The Cuba & New Orleans spirit is filtered and seasoned by the New York style of experimentation both O’Farrill & Bernstein bring to the table.  Expect “Upside Down and Turned Around” takes and various traditional themes and non-traditional excursions.

“My father left me with a list of instructions before he passed: ‘Put me in a pine box next to my mother and father. Have a small memorial for close friends and family in Los Angeles…and if you want a public event do it in Montreal,’” said singer-songwriter Adam Cohen “I see this concert as a fulfilment of my duties to my father that we gather in Montreal to ring the bells that still can ring.”

 

Cultural Capital on NPR's Fresh Air

"And there's something a little garage bandy (ph) about Sexmob's vibe in a good way. Their new CD, "Cultural Capital," was recorded at a home studio and comes in a plain, brown cardboard sleeve. Brass man Steven Bernstein writes the catchy tunes which are peppered with dance beats from tango to Jamaican dub to Jewish wedding. They can play tight but also have gleefully rude side. Saxophonist Briggan Krauss is their go-to guy for that."
