La Lucha - New Generations of Jazz @HCC Ybor Presented by Tampa Jazz Club

La Lucha & Featured Guest Artists 

Presented by Tampa Jazz Club on
Sunday, February 17

The “Best of the Bay” trio, LA LUCHA, will be joined by special guests for “A New Generation of Jazz,” at the next Tampa Jazz Club concert, in the Mainstage Theatre at HCC/Ybor City, at 3pm on Sunday, Feb 17.  Performing originals from their new album, Pa’ Lante, along with the mixture of jazz standards and reimagined pop songs the band is known for, La Lucha will also welcome four of the most exciting players emerging on the jazz scene in Tampa Bay: from USF, saxophonist CATHY LOPEZ and keyboardist ADOLFO ​​MENDONÇ​A, along with top high school musicians, drummer MEGHAN LOCK and saxophonist DYLAN McHANN. These Sunday afternoon concerts at The Mainstage are part of HCC Visual & Performing Arts Series.

LA LUCHA consists of three best friends from different parts of the world -- Colombia, Mexico, and the U.S. -- who have come together in the Bay Area. Their stylistic variety, compelling virtuosity, and engaging and energetic stage presence have built a loyal following among listeners. Among their many honors was the "Best of the Bay Jazz Ensemble" from Creative Loafing for 2013, 2014, and 2015.

"We love having La Lucha back to play the new CD, and lots of their old favorites," said Tampa Jazz Club president Bob Seymour. "And to have these four great young players on the same concert is such a rare treat, a chance to hear the current and future sound of jazz in our city."
