Mission Theater and Pub

[JAZZ] Eggun, the great Cuba-born pianist-composer Omar Sosa's 50th anniversary tribute to Miles Davis' Kind of Blue, captures the spirit of the most celebrated jazz album of all time by using that forward-looking 1959 classic as a point of departure rather than a source of imitation. Commissioned by the Barcelona Jazz Festival, Sosa's original compositions deploy African, Latin and electronic elements, even while explicitly referencing its immortal predecessor. Sosa's fine band, featuring German trumpeter Joo Kraus, saxophonist Peter Apfelbaum, Cuban flautist-saxophonist Leandro Saint-Hill and Sosa's longtime rhythm section, Marque Gilmore and Childo Tomas, make the album and this PDXJazz concert more than just another name-check.
