October 28: Ignacio Berroa Quartet at MOCA
(Published: October 22, 2016)

Jazz at MOCA presents the Ignacio Berroa Quartet on October 28 from 8 to 9:15 PM. The concert is FREE, at 770 NE 125th Street, North Miami.

At once a veteran and a pioneer, the Cuban-born drummer Ignacio Berroa has been applauded through the years for his facility in combining folkloric rhythms with contemporary jazz and funk. It's a fiery blend that swings like a mother, grooves like a locomotive, never forgetting old country roots. First call for everybody who mattered in contemporary jazz; a short list includes Dizzy Gillespie, McCoy Tyner, Jackie McLean, Jack Bruce, Winton Marsalis, Jaco Pastorius...on and on. And his pride and joy, The Ignacio Berroa Quartet positively sizzles.You want to talk groove? He digs a trench! And it's not just bare-bones time playing. It's flare and flash, too. Ignacio possesses the uncanny ability to dazzle with his fills, while he can toss off a single measure in 4/4 time that will lift a crowd to its feet.Ignacio Berroa crackles with the sort of electricity that gets people excited about playing drums in the first place. Grammy-nominated for his album "Codes," Ignacio received a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Montreal Jazz Festival in 2011. Joining Ignacio are Mark Small, Martin Bejerano, and Josh Allen.

"Ignacio plays with intelligence, taste, fire, and soul. His playing combines the finest aspects of Afro-Cuban and American styles of drumming (...) When you hear him play it just makes you feel good, just like a good hot bowl of gumbo!" - Wynton Marsalis
