Q: What do you get when you put four wailin’ saxophonists in front of a dynamo drummer?
A: A damn good time!
The powerhouse Cuban band Habana Sax ripped it up at The Egg in Albany last month, churning up a furious, fiery, fun evening of music that delved into Latin jazz, funk, Cuban, reggae, Brazilian, hip-hop and so much more. There were jazz standards, as well as avant garde excursions, and you didn’t have to know a cha-cha from a mambo in order to get in the groove with them.
