Hot House Latin Jazz Ensemble at BeanRunner Cafe
The New York based Cuban jazz ensemble "Hot House", produced and directed by trumpeter Steven Gluzband, juxtaposes traditional Cuban dance forms with the jazz idiom, young musicians with veteran players, and Cuban émigrés with first and second-generation Americans. The result of this remarkable collaboration is a fresh mix that can only be Latin jazz from NYC. Hot House’s 2008 release, "Cuban Tribute to Charlie Parker" was included in five categories in the Grammy awards.
Gluzband has played with Latin superstars Tito Puente, Mongo Santamaría, Héctor Lavoe, Machito, Celia Cruz, Sonora Matancera, Orlando Contreras, Vicentico Valdez, Ray de la Paz, Larry Harlow, the Alegre All Stars; recorded 18 albums with the Haitian group Mini All-Stars; was a member of the Ray Barretto Orchestra, appearing on over 250 recordings including the Grammy-winning Ritmo en el Corazon and Naked; and has been a member of Johnny Pacheco's band since 2006.
