Take part in an exciting evening of music and dance by Grammy-nominated pianist Axel Tosca––known for his genre-bending mix of Afro-Cuban Jazz, Timba, and Swing music––and the Jazz Ain’t Dead band on Thursday, May 18, 6:30–9:30 p.m. at the Lady of Lourdes School Gym (468 W. 143rd St., Harlem, NY 10031)  (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/jazz-aint-dead-a-jazz-swing-concert-and-dance-tickets-633908225567?s=03).

Jazz Ain’t Dead, a young urban music and dance collective, will play both classic and nu-school Jazz, re-igniting the best standards of classic jazz into the updated rhythms of funk, soul, acid jazz, Latin, and house, while bringing new energy to the 21st-century jazz scene with hot, fresh originals and clever new arrangements of today’s hot music re-imagined into a new, classically “jazz-inspired” sound.
