UH Manoa presents jazz festival
The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s Outreach College invites the public to the 5th annual Mānoa Jazz and Heritage Festival on October 6, 6 p.m. at Andrews Ampitheatre. Enjoy an evening of music from the best local professional and educational jazz groups paired with this year’s featured guest artist, the Eddie Palmieri-Brian Lynch Quartet.
In an unprecedented small group setting for “The Sun Of Latin Music” Palmieri, the quartet is the latest manifestation of the 20-plus-year musical relationship between Lynch and Palmieri and their collaboration for their Grammy Award winning CD The Brian Lynch/Eddie Palmieri Project: Simptico. Two of the most accomplished musicians around today, Lynch and Palimieri are accompanied by bassist Luques Curtis and Grammy nominated drummer/composer Dafnis Prieto.
