Sixth & I – Sanctuary

Carlos Henriquez Sextet

  • This event has passed.

The distinguished artist is well-known to local audiences as the veteran bassist of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO). Born and raised in the Bronx, Henriquez played in his teens with the likes of Tito Puente and Eddie Palmieri before joining JLCO in the ’90s.

As heard on his acclaimed debut disc, The Bronx Pyramid (2015), both his playing and his compositions are as culturally rich as his home borough, melding influences from ’60s-era hard bop, Afro-Cuban salsa, classical music, and more.

Washington Performing Arts performances at Sixth & I are made possible by the Abramson Family Foundation.

This engagement of Carlos Henriquez is made possible through the DC Special Presenters Initiative program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
