About Jazz Boricua - Four distinguished professionals in the Puerto Rican musical spectrum, “fiebrús” of Jazz and folklore, make up Jazz Boricua. In 2003, pianist and composer Ángel David Mattos further developed the concept of merging jazz and Puerto Rican music by leading a jazz ensemble in a series of presentations at the Marriott Hotel in San Juan. Over time, the concept evolved into the formation of Jazz Boricua: a jazz quartet comprising piano, sax/flute/clarinet, bass, and drums. Since the band's creation, they have been very active in the music scene in Puerto Rico, performing at major venues, community and cultural centers, festivals, and all types of events.


The artists as part of the BoriCorridor Tour will be performing Saturday evening at the  Immanuel Congregational Church (10 Woodland Street, Hartford ) at 7:00 pm tickets are $20-$25 dollars and can be purchased at
