Loyola's Jazz Underground series continues with Fuego Latino

February 3, 2012

The Jazz Underground Series at Loyola University New Orleans continues with Fuego Latino, featuring pianist Larry Sieberth and drummer Wayne Maureau, on Thursday, Feb. 9 at 7:30 p.m. in Satchmo’s, located in the basement of the Danna Student Center on the university’s main campus.

Sieberth and Maureau, both adjunct professors in Loyola’s College of Music and Fine Arts, join forces with Khari Lee on alto saxophone, Eric Lucero on trumpet, and Tommy Sciple on bass, to bring the intensity of Afro-Cuban and Brazilian rhythms together with contemporary jazz sensibilities. The performance includes selections from Maureau's CD "Sidewalk Safari," plus other original compositions by Maureau, Sieberth, Michel Camilo and Paquito D’Rivera.

Tickets are $10 for general admission, $5 for Loyola faculty and staff, and free for Loyola students. Tickets are available online at www.montage.loyno.edu or by calling 504-865-2074, and will also be available at the door 30 minutes prior to the performance. Free parking is available in the West Road Garage located on West Road and accessible from St. Charles Avenue.

A fluent jazz musician, Sieberth has performed with a wide variety of artists, including the Funk Brothers, Indian tabla master Badal Roy, the Newport Jazz Allstars and Venezuelan vocalist Maria Marquez. He has made appearances at major venues around the world, and been a regular featured artist and musical director of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival for more than 20 years. Sieberth’s compositional achievements include “Booker and Black,” a multimedia collaboration with Jon Graubarth honoring the music of James Booker and James Black, and arrangements for such stars as Allen Toussaint and Elvis Costello.

A New Orleans native, Maureau has performed in many cities around the United States as well as abroad. Annually, he plays at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and the New Orleans French Quarter Festival, and appears at other festivals around the world. Maureau has shared the stage with such acclaimed artists as Jovino Santos Neto, Carlos Malta, Bobby Shew, Walter “Wolfman” Washington, Maria Marquez and Sachal Vasandani, among many others.
