The Mambo Kings

Release Date: 2008-07-23

The Mambo Kings keep with the Afro-Cuban big band tradition by paying tribute to the pioneers of Latin Jazz. This night they feature special guests — world-class trumpet soloist Luis Gasca and trombonist/vocalist Ron Wilkins. Hoping to evoke that old-timey feeling, the Kings don festive costumes and play the works of Tito Puente, Dizzy Gilllespie, Mongo Santamaria, and Machito. $15, 7 & 9:30pm, Blue Star, 1414 S Alamo, (210) 639-2031.
