These two award-winning artists come together for a special collaboration combining their intense musical energies, enhanced by Cuban bass virtuoso Frank Portuondo. This show provides a unique opportunity to hear these musicians unplugged, spanning repertoire from their multitude of Latin Jazz albums. Alex and Omar have performed with Wynton Marsalis, Courtney Pine, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Tito Puente and a whole host of other Jazz/Latin luminaries. This performance promises to take the audience on a joyful, whirlwind journey of musical exuberance.

".. Alex Wilson is dynamite .. (he) .. really does play Latin-jazz, in the sense of fearlessly improvising with structures and notes. He's a tireless student of the music of Southern and Central Americas .. a sophisticated performer"
