Mark Towns Latin Jazz Band

Latin Jazz

Mark Towns Latin Jazz Band plays classic Latin Jazz in the tradition of Tito Puente, Cal Tjader, & Mongo Santamaria. Fronted by the guitar work of Mark Towns and featuring an All-Star lineup of the world’s best Latin and jazz instrumentalists–including some truly astounding percussionists–the band appeals to both jazz aficionados and salsa dancers as they rip through sets featuring bebop-inspired jazz soloing over authentic Latin rhythms including the Mambo, Güajira, Cha Cha Cha, Danzón, & Merengue. Mark Towns’ original tunes as well as his Latin Jazz arrangements of classic compositions by jazz masters Coltrane, Monk, Miles, and Ellington are used as launching pads for the band’s spicy-hot sonic excursions.
