Come aboard the Spirit of New York & enjoy a night of Latin Jazz on the water presented by WBGO Jazz 88.3FM & hosted by Maria Hinojosa from Latino USA. The Pedrito Martinez Group has its roots planted firmly in the Afro-Cuban Rumba tradition and in the bata rhythms and vocal chants of the music of Yoruba and Santeria. Ben Ratliff summed it up aptly for the New York Times calling it, “complex, blenderized Africa-to-the-New-World funk.”
Since its formation in the current lineup in 2008, the Pedrito Martinez group has developed into an extraordinarily creative unit with a home base gig in New York City. They have built a fan base that includes Steve Gadd, Ravi Coltrane, Taj Mahal, Eric Clapton, John Scofield, Roger Waters, Derek Trucks, Herlin Riley, and Will Lee.
