Two nights at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola
“Pedrito is a genius… working with him has been a revelation to me.” – Wynton Marsalis
Pedrito Martinez is a master percussionist. As a bandleader, he is an essential voice in the evolving tradition of Afro-Cuban music and jazz, and as a collaborator, he has recorded and performed with such artists as Eddie Palmieri, Paul Simon, Wynton Marsalis, Paquito D’Rivera, and super-group Nuevo Jazz Latino. Martinez also recorded on Cuban pianist Alfredo Rodriguez’ critically acclaimed The Invasion Parade in 2014, but the pair didn’t perform in concert together until early 2017. These two virtuosos now reunite at Dizzy’s, offering a high-octane “Cuban-born, New York-based” brand of modern Latin jazz.
