JAZZ AT THE MACC:
Jazz Funk with Dan Navarro
January 12 | 7:00
Music & Arts Community Center
Dan Navarro is one of the most in-demand bass players in Tampa. He can do anything you ask him to, but if you put an electric bass in his hands, and ask him to get funky, you’ll have a hard time sitting still! The Collective will be playing some of his Dan’s compositions, as well as music from the Jazz masters from the funk genre including Herbie Hancock, Jacoi Pastorius, among others. Featured with Dan Navarro are James Suggs on trumpet and Zach Bornheimer on saxophone. It’s going to be a groovy night!
