Pianist and composer Ann Reynolds brings her love and deep knowledge of Cuban music to Seattle with her Clave Gringa Quintet. The success of Clave Gringa’s two albums—Para Cuba con Amor and Joy, attest to the ensemble’s true embrace of many musical genres. Seamlessly blending jazz with the diverse sounds of Cuban music, including Afro-Cuban forms such as “son cubano” and “danzón,” Clave Gringa is known to deliver lots of danceable energy and spirit. Joining Ann Reynolds are trumpeter Daniel Barry, bassist Dean Schmidt, conga and bongo player Steve Smith, and drummer and cajón player Ricardo Guity.
