Mambo Kings


Thursday will see the final concert of the season in the Hochstein "Spotlight on Faculty" series, and it promises to be a hot night of Latin jazz. Mambo Kings has been presenting music that is a fusion of Afro-Cuban rhythm and contemporary jazz since 1995. Many of the group's compositions are original to Richard DeLaney, who also plays piano and teaches at Hochstein School of Music and Dance. Having heard the Kings myself, I dare you to try to sit still through the whole performance. The rhythms will carry you away. An artists' reception follows the performance.
