PEC JAZZ 2022: August 16-21
Festival 2022 : Manteca
You might think this show is the newest thing you’ve heard in jazz in a long time.
A lot of people think that, even though Manteca is into its forty-third year now. But co-founder Matt Zimbel is still in the business of bringing audiences into a sonic world, a mood, a frame of mind. Drawing on salsa, samba, funk, and tribal influences, Manteca’s aim is still to provide “new world jazz for the new world.” Creatively defiant. A refusal to conform. The Globe and Mail once called the music “Utopian, where everything is in balance," while the Toronto Star hailed the JUNO-winning band as a purveyor of “gut-grabbing innovation.”
