Program #1909

Mixing funk, hip hop, jazz, jamming, Afro-Cuban, soul, and jam-band styles, the Brooklyn-based band Groove Collective manages to be both stylistic adventurous and danceable. We hear selections from the band's recent recodings along with discs by Chucho Valdes; Greg Ribot and Cumbia del Norte; Late Night Express; Tekamali; Luis Delgado; and others.
