Jazz/Hip-Hop quintet Sueños celebrates the release of their sophomore album, “Shots Fired”! The band pushes the evolution of jazz into a modern context, borrowing rhythms from hip-hop and rock, and blending them seamlessly with modal and gospel harmony. Bebop-tinged horns flow over the top to paint a unique musical portrait. They have performed nationwide, including at the PDX Jazz Festival in Portland and Herb Alpert’s Vibrato Jazz Club in LA. Sueños is Noah Frank on trumpet, Eli Maliwan on tenor sax and EWI, Greg Jacobs on piano, Curtis Aikens on acoustic and electric bass, and Brandon Farmer on drums.
Jazz in the Neighborhood presents its Wednesday night series at CJC with financial support from AFM Musicians Union Local 6.
