Jane Bunnett and Maqueque are recording their exciting new project , “PLAYING WITH FIRE ” BUT, before they do, they are featuring the new sound for one night only at the Legendary Elmo on Thursday September 15 .
This is the first Maqueque show in Toronto in more that 3 years. Starting out as a project to support excellent young Cuban female players and composers, this dynamic cooperative has became one of the top jazz groups touring today according to Downbeat Magazine’s Critics Poll.
Multiple tours in the US, Europe and Juno wins and a Grammy Nomination have propelled Maqueque to one of the top tier jazz bands playing today.
YOU MUST SEE THEM LIVE!
For the show and recording we are adding powerhouse guitarist DONNA GRANTIS as our special guest.
