KCC Productions and the Van Dyke Café are proud to present, in from New York, the Nelson Riveros Ensemble Upstairs at the Van Dyke on September 8. The Van Dyke is located at 846 Lincoln Road in South Beach. Performance time is from 9-12.

Nelson Riveros has just released his first CD, entitled “Camino Al Barrio”. It is a Contemporary-Jazz recording with diverse Latin influences, featuring the talents of pianist Hector Martignon (Ray Barreto, Gato Barbieri, Paquito D’Rivera), bassist Armando Gola (Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Arturo Sandoval, Alejandro Sanz), drummer Ernesto Simpson (Arturo Sandoval, Richard Bona), and percussionist Samuel Torres (Arturo Sandoval, Richard Bona, Tito Puente), as well as special guests, vibraphonist Christos Rafalides (leader of “Manahattan Vibes”) and Andres Garcia, master of the 12-string Colombian Tiple. “Camino Al Barrio” reached number eight on the Jazz Week World Music Chart. Nelson was nominated for a Latin Jazz Corner Award (2010) in two categories: as Best Next Generation Artist and Best Latin Jazz Guitarist. He has performed in many venues in New Work, including Kavehaz, Cleopatra’s Needle, Tavern on The Green, and Miles Café.

Tonight he will be accompanied by Grammy-nominated piano virtuoso José Negroni and drummer extraordinaire Nomar Negroni, and legendary bassist Nicky Orta. Be sure to catch this outstanding artist, in Miami Beach for one night only.

The Van Dyke has a cover charge of $5 at the tables but is free at the bar. For further information call the Van Dyke at 305-534-3600 or KCC Productions at 305-332-2623, or visit thevandykecafe.com.
