Memo Acevedo‘s Manhattan Bridges Orchestra
One thing drives the father and daughter team of Memo and Jacquelene Acevedo… their love and passion for the music they do. Desiring to have the freedom element in their art, they refuse to be labeled by being opened to experiment with the fusion of Be-Bop and Jazz harmonies mixed with Latin American rhythms from Brazil, Cuba and Colombia. Together with their 10 piece powerhouse, The Manhattan Bridges Orchestra (MBO) they’ll bring just that to Birdland Jazz Club Sunday, July 29th for a 90’ show starting at 6:00 pm. For this occasion, the guest from the new generation of Brazilian singers is the great Liz Rosa, will join the band.
MBO features the talents of Trumpet players, Ben Kibbey and Sam Hoyt, Pianist Cesar Orozco, Bassist Edward Perez, Flutist Karen Joseph, Baritone sax Jason Marshall, Tenor and Soprano saxes Dave Anderson, Mark Patterson on Trombone, singer Liz Rosa and Jacquelene Acevedo on congas and percussion.
Shows at 8 PM & 10 PM; Cover $20 at the door
