The Heritage Ensemble is proud to participate in Make Music New York (MMNY) — a live, free musical celebration on June 21, with over 1,200 concerts on streets, sidewalks, and parks across the five boroughs.

Taking the stage at Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem, The Heritage Ensemble will perform their popular interactive program “We’ve Got Rhythms” which includes selections from their CDs  “A Fresh Take,” “Mosaica” and“Changes” — a great way to spend your lunch break!

The Heritage Ensemble has a fresh sound and experience that jazz audiences and beyond can access, be inspired by, and appreciate. This imaginative and tight quintet melds the melodic & rhythmic commonalities among Jazz, Hebraic, Afro-Caribbean & Brazilian musical cultures. This is why the New York City Jazz Record called the ensemble “a cross-cultural collaboration that spins and grooves.”  This audience-interactive musical performance is not to be missed.

This ensemble of first-rate musicians includes: Award-winning bandleader/keyboardist Eugene Marlow, seven-time Grammy nominee drummer Bobby Sanabria, award-winning saxophonist Michael Hashim, virtuoso percussionist Matthew Gonzalez, and electrifying bassist Frank Wagner.
