“John di Martino's middle name should be 'taste', for he conveys that quality in both solo and supportive roles, in jazz as well as Latin music.” —Ray Barretto
Acclaimed jazz pianist John di Martino brings his quartet to Zinc to celebrate the music of composer Billy Strayhorn on Tuesday, September 27. He’s supported by tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, bassist Boris Kozlov, and drummer Carmen Intorre.
John di Martino has been described by Paul Pines as a musical "shape shifter", inhabiting three different worlds. As a straight-ahead jazz pianist, he has performed and recorded with such notables as Kenny Burrell, Pat Martino, James Moody, and Eddie Gomez. Mr. di Martino is a sought-after musical director and has accompanied Jon Hendricks, Diane Schuur, and the late Billy Eckstine.
Showtimes are at 7:00 PM and 8:30 pm. Tickets: $25 advance / $30 day of show. For more info, visit http://zincjazzcom.

In the WheatonArts Down Jersey Folklife Center, this exhibition provides a visual comparison between traditional textiles of two indigenous communities of Latin America—the Chilean Mapuche people and the Guatemalan Maya. Both Mapuche and Maya artists create artworks about identity and cultural heritage in a modern interconnected world, weaving ancestral knowledge and wisdom into present-day ways of life. The story of the spider who taught the first woman how to weave in the mythological past is present in both cultures. Many designs and motifs are interpreted in similar ways. However, the creative process reflects differences in techniques and materials employed in the two different geographic regions. Revealed in the exhibition are the complex characters of Mapuche and Mayan garments with weaving patterns interpreted in the context of a broad spectrum of regional, social, ritual, and aesthetic meanings and viewed from the perspective of our shared humanity.
The exhibition also features Chilean horsehair (crin) miniatures of religious and secular objects—flowers, animals, or human figures—that aim to engage viewers in a conversation about the dynamics of living traditions over time, their social, artistic, and ritual messages conveyed by the artworks and by the nature of the creative process.

Developed in partnership with the Embassy of Chile to the United States, the Foundation of the Folk and Traditional Artists in Chile, the “Friends of the Ixchel Museum” (FOIM), and local collectors and artists.
