Los Olvidados/ The Forgotten Ones. Audio documentary- the Latin experience in Jazz

Created and hosted by Michael Abrosino

Los Olvidados (The Forgotten Ones) is a one hour audio documentary exploring some of the unique historical, cultural, and artistic contributions that encompass the Latin experience in Jazz. The program explores the viewpoints and music of a special group of award winning artists, scholars and activists. Jane Bunnett, Dr. Martha Gonzalez, Dr. Benjamin Lapidus, Yilian Cañizares, Arturo O'Farrill, Michele Rosewoman, Bobby Sanabria, John Santos, Dr. Chris Washburne and Miguel Zenón will speak to the inspiration they maintain as contributors, educators, and creative thinkers within Pan-Latin Jazz

"Whether originating from Panama, Mexican, Argentina, Columbia, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Trinidad or storied urban centers in the United States, this magnificent groove, and the rhythmic tension it's built on, embody the quintessential nature of Jazz. Featuring influential contemporary musicians, critics and curators of Pan- Latin music, Los Olvidados will explore how this storied musical tradition continues to combat a legacy of indifference, while remaining at the forefront of musicality transforming the quintessential nature of Jazz.
Made possible by a grant from the Mass Cultural Council."

Watch New Yor-Uba's Performance@Institute of Jazz Studies Newark/Clement's Place 12-2-22

Clement's Place is a most comfortable room and atmosphere--intimate, relaxed.  We had big fun and want to say thank you to Wayne Winborne for the invitation and for setting the laid back personal tone.  Here is a video of the performance--webstream and video by Peter Lin and company.
