Latin Jazz from Cuba to Prohibition @Prohibition Savannah

Prohibition, the upscale eatery and bar on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, is quickly becoming a downtown music destination. On Friday, guests can enjoy an evening dedicated to the art of Cuban jazz.

The Castillo Quartet, led by celebrated trumpeter Julito Padron, features Savannah’s own Ricardo Ochoa, Jake Holwegner on bass, and Abdiel Iriarte on piano and musical direction. Padron has been making waves in his home of Cuba and beyond, performing with Chucho Valdes Oficial Irakere around the world. He has worked with masters like Ignacio Piñeiro and Adalberto Alvarez and finds inspiration in American jazz and Brazilian music. Noteworthy performances include a concert at Carnegie Hall in New York with Chucho Caldes and with Count Basie with the late timbales maestro Tito Puente.

Friday, May 25, 10 p.m.
