Europes leading Afro Cuban Jazz group, Snowboy and the Latin Section, celebrate their 16thalbum, 'New York Afternoon' with special guest from Boston, USA - Jen Kearney.
'New York Afternoon' draws on Jazz Dance classics, Salsa, Mambo and Latin Jazz, and captures the block party feel of 1970's New York, inspired by the greats such as Eddie Palmieri and Tito Puente. Not only will this special 30th Anniversary Concert feature the whole album, but will also feature various songs from Snowboy's past 15 albums.

More importantly he is also the leader of Europe's leading Afro-Cuban Jazz group, featuring a who's-who of the UK's most exciting and pyrotechnic Jazz and Latin players.
