Madison Latin Jazz Icon Tony Castaneda Concludes “InDIGenous Jazz” Series
Percussionist Tony Castañeda has been one of our community’s iconic musicians for over 30 years. His sextet has been voted Madison’s favorite jazz band for 16 straight years (2000-2016) in the Isthmus readers’ poll, and is a three-time MAMA award winner. For their InDIGenous Jazz concert, the Sextet will include original works from their CD, “Mambo o Muerte,” as well as newly-written material by members of the band. Along with Tony on congas and bongos, the Sextet includes saxophonist Anders Svanoe, guitarist Louka Patenaude, pianist Dave Stoler, bassist Henry Boehm, and Roberto Rengel on timbales.
The performance, free of charge, will be in the beautiful glass-enclosed third floor space in Madison’s Central Library . It begins at 7:30 PM and includes two sets of music. A cash bar is provided by Gib’s, the new craft cocktail bar at 1380 Williamson Street.
