Vocalist and chekere player Eladio “Don Pancho” Terry, one of the most revered figures of AfroCuban folkoric and traditional music, and the patriarch of the Terry family, will be reunited in concert with his sons, jazz saxophonist YOSVANY TERRY and bassist YUNIOR TERRY. Together they create a journey through Cuba’s musical history — from AfroCuban folklore to the charanga music of Cuba’s “golden age” of the 1940s to cutting-edge Latin jazz.

Musicians
Eliado “Don Pacho” Terry: Vocals & Chekere; Yosvany Terry: Saxophones & Chekere; Yunior Terry:Bass; Osmany Paredes: Piano; Javier Porta: Flute; Lidia Cabrera: Vocals.

The newly refurbished, historical Minton’s Playhouse is hosting the JC Hopkins Biggish Band featuringQueen Esther for a residency of Wednesday gigs starting on May 7th. Grammy nominated JC Hopkins and his ensemble of pedigreed jazz musicians swing hard and passionately through original material penned by Hopkins but also feature Bop tunes initially crafted at Minton’s back in the day by Thelonious Monk, Bird and Diz, expanded for a semi-big jazz conglomeration.

Queen Esther, with sass and finesse fronts the band, with her evocative voice and massive range, interpreting new material as well as covering lesser-known songs from Billie Holiday’s canon. Each night is expected to be a real happening.

Doors open at 6:00pm.

Performances from 7pm-11pm.

Music charge: $10 at the bar, $20 at a table.

Dinner reservations are recommended.

Tuesdays & Wednesdays at Minton’sFood and Beverage: Bar Seating is $10 per person, table seating is $20 per person.
