This evening, Grammy-nominated percussionist Sammy Figueroa and his cadre of international session stars, Latin Jazz Explosion, will serenade you with jazz, sweet jazz. The groups sound is as diverse as its players; theyve trickled into South Florida from Cuba, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and other dreamily warm locales. Dancing dizzily between mambo beats, standards, and free-for-all sonic eruptions, Sammy and his boys will remind you why you stay put during hurricane season. After all, where else can you wile away a steamy evening with tropical jazz and dancing under the stars for free?
