An Evening of Latin Jazz to Benefit Frankie Pineiro
Latin Jazz Knights, Guisando Caliente, and Viva Cal! will perform. Featuring Kenny Drew Jr on piano and special guest Gumbi Ortiz on congas. Also playing: Jeff Rupert - Sax; John Jenkins - drums; Hector Mayoral - percussion; Joe Porter - bass; and Cole Hazlitt - vibraphone. Frankie Pineiro has long been a fixture of the Tampa Bay Jazz community. For many years he was host of the Latin Jazz program on WMNF 88.5 and for the past few years he has hosted the Afro-Cuban Jazz Edition on WSLR 96.5 from 10am-12pm on alternate Tuesdays. Pineiro has been battling heart disease and recently had to have one of his legs amputated. The jazz community has come together with WSLR to put on a show to raise funds to help Frankie pay his medical bills. Please join us to show your support. Food will be available from Zest Catering.
