Cafêzz Live at the Modernism Museum

Cafêzz is a Puerto Rican based Latin Jazz & World Fusion band. The band's style is very eclectic, embracing a wide array of Caribbean, Brazilian, Latin, Jazz, Funk, Rock, Folk and Classical influences.“Cafêzz” is, in fact, the combination of the words café (coffee in Spanish) and jazz, and it captures their notion that a customary coffee moment could also be an occasion to share music with friends. The band has performed alongside top musicians like David Sánchez, Humberto Ramírez, Luis Perico Ortíz, Ricardo Pons and Oskar Cartaya, and has played at the Puerto Rico Jazz Jam Fest, Carolina International Jazz Festival, Heineken’s Ventana al Jazz, and Inter Metro Jazz Festival, among others.  Get a taste of their smooth, sophisticated Latin-based stylings here.

Cafêzz "Sol Boricua" Album was selected as one of "The Best Releases of 2016" by "All About Jazz" Magazine.

"Cafêzz, being a talented and well-produced band, has cleverly created a unique concept swirling around coffee... Goes to show, coffee and jazz do make an excellent combination." ~ James Nadal, "All About Jazz" Magazine

CeCe Teneal Brought Jazz & Blues to MMMD

This encore performance had our audience dancing in the aisle. Cece Teneal dazzled us on Wendell Castle's Caligari piano along withan abbreviated version of her fantastic band!

The energy was high and it was a night our patrons will not soon forget, especially since this was one of the last concerts to be performed live in the "esherick to NAKASHIMA" exhibit.
