Chembo Corniel

Chembo Corniel

The 14th annual Albany Latin Festival kicked off with the Latin jazz sounds of master conguero Chembo Corniel and Grupo Chaworo. Corniel – who also helped launch Jazzlatino’s Ahora, Latin/Jazz concert series at Schenectady’s Unitarian Society Whisperdome two years ago – wove his percussive beats in tandem with Vince Cherico’s traps drumming and Andy Eulau’s basslines, building a solid foundation for the soaring solos of keyboardist Elio Villafranca and fiery saxophonist Justin Flynn.
