Festival of New Trumpet (FONT) and The Blue Note (NYC) present the debut of Jonathan Powell's new Latin Jazz Sextet featuring some of the brightest talent on the NYC Latin Music scene. Jonathan has been a mainstay of the New York Latin must scene since 2001 playing regularly with the ensembles of Eddie Palmieri, Arturo O'Farrill, Gregorio Uribe, Pedro Giraudo and many others. Powell, a winner of the "2009 Best Latin Jazz Trumpet Award" (Latin Jazz Corner), has earned praise from critics such as Nat Hentoff who wrote “Powell’s crackling range and the electricity of his imagination reminded me of the first time I heard Lee Morgan and Clifford Brown. His voice is his own …” (Jazz Times). Jonathan will be joined by fellow Palmieri band member and saxophonist Louis Fouché (Christian Scott, Eddie Palmieri), Grammy Nominee and pianist Manuel Valera, bassist Ricky Rodriguez (David Sanchez, 90 Miles Peoject), drummer Henry Cole (Miguel Zenon, Alfredo Rodriguez), percussionist Mauricio Herrera (90 Miles Project, Manolito Simonet) and brother Jeremy Powell on sax (Larry Coryell, Jeff Berlin).
