Cuba and all that jazz

Tel Aviv will get several touches of Cuba later today when jazz pianist Elio Villafranca does his thing at Bet Hayotzer in Tel Aviv Port. Students and fans of the Latin side of the jazz tracks should be able to get a better handle on the art form when Villafranca presents a master class at 3 p.m.

The New York-based musician-composer-bandleader will perform material from his burgeoning discography, the latest offering of which, Dos Y Mas, came out in 2012 and incorporates numerous musical genres from the pianist’s island motherland. On Dos Y Mas Villafranca joins forces with percussionist Arturo Stable, and both display a penchant for eclectic rhythms and styles.
