The Latin Jazz All-Stars join forces for an evening of brilliant music, showcasing six notable jazz masters. Having performed to sold-out crowds and packed houses all over the country, this "super band" features no leader, instead all of the performers share the spotlight and genuinely enjoy playing together.
