With musical director Michael Sharfe on bass, Charles Ali Schweitzer as primary percussionist and Baba Charles Miller as auxiliary percussionist, Mike Darrah on piano, Tim McCord on reeds, John Zappa on trumpet and various local greats on trombone, Mambo Combo is made up of first-call players with distinguished musical resumes, all in heavy demand for live and studio work. The band’s first-Thursday nights at The Greenwich, the historic jazz club in Cincinnati’s Walnut Hills, has built an exuberant Cuban Carnival dance scene and draws a fervent group of followers who show up to salsa.
The concert will be held in KHAC's Lindner Annex at the corner of Kennedy and Montgomery (look for the mural!) From 7:00-7:30pm, enjoy complimentary food from FUSIAN and cash bar. Music starts at 7:30pm.
Also, on view in the Lindner Gallery will be a selection from Homage to a Sound by Melvin Grier. The exhibition pays tribute to the wonderful world of Jazz with performance and behind-the-scenes photographs of musicians at renowned Cincinnati venues.
