I had plane reservations to go to New York ity for the Mega Timba concert scheduled for 5/26/2012.  When the concert got cancelled at the last minute I decided to go to NYC anyway and I am glad I did.  I got to hang out with family and friends and saw two outstanding concerts which made the trip worthwhile.

I arrived in NYC at about 10:30 p.m. and rushed down to the Zinc Bar in Greenwich Village to catch the incomparable Alain Pérez with a top notch latin jazz group.  I have been going to jazz concerts for over 40 years, so I am a bit of a jazz snob.  Alain lived up to all the hype I have heard about him, playing funky bass lines, intense and creative solos, great vocals and timbale playing all night as well as making up fantastic arrangements on the fly.  All the band members excelled and Jerry González, who was playing down the street at the Blue Note, came by and sat in on trumpet.

What follows are some of the photos I took that night.  Timba.com is working on some video clips from the concert and will be posted soon.
