Latin Jazz with Nicki Denner Latin Jazz Trio, Ray Mantilla Space Station/ Good Vibration Band and DJ Rey-Mo
Leader of the Space Station/Good Vibration Band, Ray Mantilla describes his music as "Latin jazz with authentic Latino rhythms." He has played with everyone from Max Roach to Gato Barbieri, Tito Puente to Charles Mingus, and can be heard on over 200 albums. Pianist/composer/arranger Nicki Denner has been a part of the New York Latin and jazz music scene since 1999. Since 2001, she has led her own trio featuring Jennifer Vincent on bass, and Willie Martinez on drums. In 2006, the trio released their debut recording, "Moliendo Café," named one of the "Top Ten Picks of 2006" in Latin Beat Magazine. Spinning records across the globe while utilizing today’s technology to showcase his impact is just one way New Jersey’s DJ Rey-Mo keeps his stock on the rise. His energetic presence behind the microphone and eclectic mixing style earned him induction into the elite DJ circle of the Heavy Hitters, the only New Jersey DJ to bear this title. He also deejays on Power 105.1 on weekends. WBGO Jazz88.3 FM is a media partner for this performance.
