The Department of Music presents the Duende Quartet. Bassist Josh Schwartzman, percussionists Mark Merella and Sam "Seguito" Turner and Harry Appelman on piano/keyboards, has been chosen twice by Jazz at Lincoln Center to tour internationally under the auspices of the U.S. Department of State's American Music Abroad program. The Duende Quartet plays Latin Jazz with a nod to the Blue Note sound of the '60s. In a unique small group setting (with piano, bass and two hand percussionists) the group captures the vibe of the jazz combo while using the rhythms of a Cuban conjunto. Duende's music strikes an inviting balance between the spontaneity of jazz improvisation and the infectious rhythms of the Caribbean.
8 pm, Fine Arts Recital Hall. $7 general admission, $3 seniors, free for students, free with a UMBC ID. Tickets will be available in early fall 2011.
