Guillermo Klein y Los Gauchos
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
“Rightly heralded in postmodern jazz circles for the flexibility, urgency and otherworldly vision of his music.”—New York Times
Argentine jazz composer and pianist Guillermo Klein returns to the Wex with his stellar 11-piece band that features standout artists from the New York and Latin American scenes. Known for weaving traces of classical and Latin influences into the unique textures of his “folkloric futurism,” Klein’s nimble approach to writing for his large jazz ensemble displays orchestral and melodic prowess, lush harmonic layering, and rhythmic subtlety. Featuring top brass players Miguel Zenón, Chris Cheek, Bill McHenry, and Diego Urcola, the ensemble’s sold-out Wex debut in 2012 was a major treat for local jazz fans. Get your tickets early for this concert, a showcase for Klein’s vibrant, intricate compositions and this very special group of gifted musicians.
