Welcome to the resurgence of Latin Jazz Guitar and Vibraphone!
The long-awaited arrival of Irizarry and Martin Fabricius marks a new era in Latin Jazz that hasn’t been heard since the legendary groups of Cal Tjader and Tito Puente.
Continuing from their February 2023 tour of the Baltics, Neff and his all-star Baltic group featuring Victor Mendoza on vibraphone will present an action packed night of progressive Latin jazz steaming with Puerto Rican “Sabor” and a Nordic cool called “Sisu.”
“Neff Irizarry has embarked down a path traveled by a few guitarists in contemporary jazz and certainly contemporary Latin jazz! To execute all the montunos, guajeos, necessary harmonizations, and to solo with clarity and fire is a tall order but Neff is certainly up to the task.” —Steve Khan, guitarist The Voice of Latin Jazz Guitar
“…breath taking and impressive.”
