Jazz Roots: British Invasion


British Invasion – Latin Style. Arturo Sandoval, Lucy Woodward, Kate Reid, Fantine, Shelly Berg and the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra. Hosted by Malcolm McDowell. The 12th anniversary season of JAZZ ROOTS begins with a Latin and British musical mix starring ARTURO SANDOVAL, LUCY WOODWARD, KATE REID, FANTINE, and SHELLY BERG featuring the HENRY MANCINI INSTITUTE ORCHESTRA. The evening will also serve as a welcome to the new JAZZ ROOTS presenting partner, EFG International. The concert is an exciting twist on British-influenced jazz with new arrangements and orchestrations of The Beatles, Sting and more. A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, ARTURO SANDOVAL was born in a small town on the outskirts of Havana, Cuba, just two years after Gillespie became the first musician to bring Latin influences into American jazz. He has since evolved into one of the world’s most acknowledged guardians of jazz trumpet as well as a renowned classical artist, pianist and composer. SANDOVAL has been awarded 10 GRAMMY® Awards, 19 GRAMMY® nominations, six Billboard Awards, an Emmy Award and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In 2018, his landmark album Ultimate Duets included collaborations with musical legends including Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams, Al Jarreau, and Celia Cruz to name a few. Joining SANDOVAL that evening will be London native LUCY WOODWARD whose performances USA Today hails as “a string-kissed slice of retro British pop by a versatile singer/songwriter”; vocalist KATE REID; multilingual artist FANTINE; Steinway piano artist and multi-GRAMMY® nominated arranger and producer SHELLY BERG; and Golden Globe nominee and world-class actor MALCOLM MCDOWELL who will serve as the evening’s host.
