April is Jazz Appreciation Month, and the ongoing second-Saturday-of-the-month jazz concert series at Albany’s Madison Theater kept the celebration going with a performance by NYC-based virtuoso flutist Colette Michaan and her quartet, featuring bassist Jorge Bringas, drummer Manuel Alejandro Carro and trombonist Ray David Alejandre.

Michaan is known for incorporating the various influences of world music in her jazz sound. While her Albany performance concentrated primarily on the roots and branches of Latin American music, there was also a single performance with a bamboo flute to represent the music of India.

The Madison’s jazz concert series continues on Saturday, May 14 with the Afro Cuban Saxtet featuring saxophonist Onel Mulet and percussionist Roman Diaz playing Afro Cuban music derived from the Yoruba.
