- Jimmy Bosch
Killer New York trombonist Jimmy Bosch is in town this weekend to play as part of a tribute to Manny Oquendo’s Conjunto Libre on Saturday evening at the Viva! Chicago Latin Music Festival. Luckily, he’s sticking around to play a concert of his own music on Sunday night at Rumba. The Puerto Rican native has long been a fixture on the New York salsa scene, working with everyone from Celia Cruz to Willie Colon to Ruben Blades as well as leading his own remarkable bands, which play what he calls salsa dura (“hard salsa”). That means his music never veers into lightweight pop territory. This is uncut, hard-charging stuff.
