Alexis Cuadrado @ Jazz Gallery 6/23/12

This is where I wanted to be.  This show was part of the commissioned Leading From the Bass composer's series.  A string quartet sat out in front of a 2 horn quartet.  Cuadrado is inspired by flamenco and The Beatles, and he created some phenomenal compositions.  The music was all superb.
