Returning to the Timucua Arts stage with jazz phenoms La Lucha for two shows
In the grand tradition of nine previous
Joseph Hayes/La Lucha collaborations, improvised jazz meets unrevealed spoken word, where the destination of the performance is unknown until it gets there. We don't know exactly what will be played, or said, or in what order.
JAZZ SPOKEN HERE will highlight words written for the various plays of The Hayes Project, and new music from
Mark Feinman and
John O'Leary, with special guests for the "late" show.

THE CAST OF CHARACTERS
LA LUCHABassist Alejandro Arenas, drummer Mark Feinman and pianist John O’Leary have toured and performed at jazz festivals around the world as La Lucha. The band aims to create music which transcends genres and classifications. The three brilliant Central Florida musicians will create a one-of-a-kind, one night only theatrical jazz experience for this 10th collaboration with Joseph Hayes, primarily in an improvisational setting. Their latest record is EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD on Arbors Records.MORE INFO
