A once-in-a-lifetime evening to benefit one of the world’s premier jazz flutists, who has not been able to perform as of late because of health issues. Join an internationally-acclaimed array of Latin jazz artists for an unforgettable evening in support of the Bronx’s own legendary pied piper who generously donated his talents to so many community organizations and causes as a citizen-artist. Now, this concert is for him.
