The Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis, Minn., plays with fire — and soul — when Cuban piano virtuoso Nachito Herrera meets members of the Steele family of gospel singers for a tribute to Earth, Wind and Fire.
Herrera grew up in Cuba, studied piano with Ruben Gonzalez from the Buena Vista Social Club, and became musical director of the powerful Cubanismo! band that toured the U.S. in the '90s. Now living in the Twin Cities and a regular at the Dakota, he unearths a state secret at midnight Central Time.
The concert is presented with the help of KBEM Minneapolis.
