Virtuoso guitarist Dani Cortaza and his group return to Blues Alley for this year’s Hispanic Heritage Month series, joined by a very special guest, powerhouse salsa vocalist Max Rosado, for a wonderful evening of music highlighting the Latin side of jazz. Dani and Max will share some of their favorite tunes from several genres, including Latin jazz, boleros and Latin pop. You will even recognize some classic American folk tunes. Not to be missed!
