“Forging a distinctive musical vision.” —The Arts Fuse
Winner of the ASCAP Young Jazz Composer’s competition three years in a row, Zaccai Curtis is a composer and pianist evolving African-Caribbean-New Orleans norms in rapid motion. For his BDJF debut, Curtis brings along his CUBOP ensemble, which expands upon the composers’ open concepts in Latin jazz with original compositions and arrangements, featuring timbales player Willie Martinez, and conga players Camilo Molina and Reinaldo DeJesus. Hometown hero and host of VPR’s Friday Night Jazz Ray Vega rounds out the band on trumpet, ensuring unprecedented heat.
