White Plains Jazz Festival – September 7, 2014

White Plains Jazz Festival  -  September 7, 2014

This gig was out in the street in front of the ArtsWestchester building.  I caught the final two acts, Mike Morganelli’s Brazil Project and Bobby Sanabria/Ascension.  Since I had already previously sketched both band leaders, I focused instead on others in the combos.  Oliveira was MMBP’s featured singer, just the right amount of perk for Morganelli’s Brazilian sounds (these are the black & whites).  Sanabria jacked up the energy level, as he usually does (the sketches are in color), and at one point the band members paraded through the crowd with various hand percussions.  Remon, new to me, has an extensive track record in the mambo jazz idiom.
