It’s another one of those weeks at Dazzle, in its new downtown location on Curtis Street, when you can visit the club on any night and find a substantial national artist on stage. It all begins on Thursday with pianist Benny Green and his trio playing 6 and 8:30 p.m. In modern jazz history, the two premier groups that have the strongest record as a training ground for up-and-coming young players are singer Betty Carter’s trio and Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. And that’s exactly how Green established his reputation, first with Carter and then with Blakey.

As we have shown in so many previous episodes of Alt.Latino, the cultural interchange between the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean has been going on practically since there were people in these parts of the world.
