The Big 3 Palladium Orchestra @ The Barbican.

Brian Bennett, charismatic leader of the Vieux Carré Jazzmen, has drawn my attention to last night's BBC4 broadcast from the Barbican Centre by the Big 3 Palladium Orchestra.
As Brian rightly points out this was a trememendous evening of Latin Jazz based on the music of Machito, Tito Puente and Tito Rodriguez.
Thank you Brian.Click here to watch. Lance PS: Look out for Muscrat Mambo from the Vieux Carré.
