Cuban-born Ignacio Berroa is one of the most versatile and highly respected drummers in jazz. He was in his early twenties in 1980 when he came to New York from Cuba, and within a year had been invited to join Dizzy Gillespie’s band. Dizzy famously tagged Berroa as “the only Latin drummer in the world in the history of American music that intimately knows both worlds: his native Afro-Cuban music as well as Jazz…” His trio’s most recent recording, Straight Ahead from Havana, gives full play to that extraordinary versatility. Don’t miss the cross-cultural fire and grace of the Ignacio Berroa Trio!
