Bobby Sanabria Multiverse Big Band

Bobby Sanabria summer 2022

Bobby Sanabria Multiverse Big Band

Jazzmobile's mission is to present, preserve, promote and propagate America's classical music, Jazz. This summer, Jazzmobile presents native Nuyorican drummer, percussionist, composer, arranger, and activist Bobby Sanabria and his 21-piece multi-Grammy nominated Multiverse Big Band.

This performance will combine elements of Jazz, funk, and R & B, as well as Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, Puerto Rican rhythms and more into what Fernando Gonzalez of JazzTimes has described as "... a musical juggernaut." Ben Ratliff of The New York Times says "... Mr. Sanabria expands the possibilities, moving the sound of bands like that of Puente, Machito, with all the heft and intricacy and clave-based dance rhythm, into the harmonically oriented sophistication of current New York jazz players. It's New York up and down, and back and forth across the last century, from the street to the mambo palaces to the conservatories."
