Manny Oquendo's Libre+Papo Vazquez Pirates and Troubadours+Dave Valentin Band
Even as a legacy group led by bassist Andy Gonzalez, the late percussionist Manny Oquendo's Libre still fans the flaming polyrhythmic fury of classic '70s salsa conjunto. At this benefit for ailing salsa flutist Dave Valentin, they'll be joined by trombonist Papo Vazquez's deft Caribbean-flavored ensemble, saxophonist Sonny Fortune, trombonist-seashellist Steve Turre, and vibraphonist Dave Samuels, sitting in with Valentin's own tight combo.
