This weekend Buffalo gets a visit from one of the most important figures in modern jazz, Miguel Zenón. A true visionary and innovator in the world of jazz today. Another opportunity to witness the upper echelon of jazz artistry and creativity.
In this week’s JazzBuffalo Pick, we highlight our next Art of Jazz Series concert on Sunday, March 12th that brings to Buffalo one of the most celebrated saxophonists in the world. The multiple-Grammy® Nominee will present music from his epic album Música De Las Américas (2022). Get tickets soon to avoid missing out!

Jazz Guitarist Charlie Ballantine at Seneca One Friday, March 18!
FROM ALL ABOUT JAZZ:
“At 33, Ballantine has recorded eight albums and they are all gems. His range is wide and eclectic with tributes to Bob Dylan, Thelonious Monk, and Kurt Vonnegut. But his December 2022 release stands out as a masterpiece of artistry, melody, and deep feeling. Falling Grace doesn’t hit one over the head right away, but you might find you can’t stop playing it over and over again. Falling Grace may be Ballantine’s Kind of Blue (Columbia, 1959) for the 21st Century. It flows, grooves, dances, and soars above the crowd.”
Charlie Ballantine is one of the most promising rising star jazz guitarists today. Fabulous compositions and music. You really need to make this! To encourage you to support this artist, we are going to make this a $10 at-the-door event.
