Join us for an exciting concert with Santi Debriano outdoors at the newly-reopened Greenbelt Recreation Center.

"The depth of his performances and his energy [are] an inspiration for his colleagues and his audiences."- Jabali Billy Hart

Santi Debriano (b. Panama Rep. 1955) has been composing music on his acoustic bass since 1982. His abilities as an improviser, arranger and composer have made him a favorite of such greats as Archie Shepp, Sam Rivers, Pharaoh Sanders, Oliver Lake, Freddie Hubbard, Danilo Perez, and others. He has over 100 recordings as a sideman to his credit, and 9 recordings as a leader. Mr. Debriano teaches privately from his home on Staten Island, NY. 

In case of rain, the concert moves indoors.

Please let us know you're coming. RSVP to

Presented by the Jazz Foundation of America, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.
