GABRIEL LATCHIN QUINTET “THE MOON AND I” TOUR
May 28 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Pianist and composer Gabriel Latchin will be playing at our popular Jazz Cafe as part of the tour for his new release The Moon and I. Taken from a lyric in Hubbell and Golden’s Poor Butterfly, the title is a tip of the hat to the opening tune he performed recently at Wigmore Hall with Christian McBride and Renée Fleming.
Longtime collaborators, Gabriel’s trio have developed a unique sound: a hardswinging 1950s aesthetic married with the contemporary vision of Latchin’s compositions. For his performance at the Jazz Cafe, Gabriel’s trio is joined by Steve Fishwick on trumpet and Sam Braysher on sax in classic Horace Silver/ Art Blakey Quintet lineup. Not to be missed!
