Pablo Batista and his Latin Jazz Ensemble

Pablo Batista brings the funk en clave to Philly’s deep musical playbook with virtuosity and versatility, no matter the size or style of the performance.

Pablo’s Latin Jazz Ensemble thrills audiences with irresistible, original interpretations of classics from Dizzy, Trane, Lee Morgan, Stanley Clarke, mentor Grover Washington, Jr. and contemporary out-of-town jazzers like Art Blakey, Chick Corea, Michel Camilo and more. The band has rocked these events, among others:

  • Kimmel Center,
  • Oak Lane Jazz Festival,
  • Philadelphia Jazz Project Series/Venice Island Recreation Center
