Wynton Marsalis played at American Trade Hotel

Panama, Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo

A phone call, a friendship, an amazing event: jazz legend Wynton Marsalis ended up playing at the American Trade Hotel in Casco Viejo after a trip to Venezuela was cancelled.

The famous trumpet player was touring Latin America along with 20 musicians from New York`s Lincoln Center, so he reached out to his old friend (and Grammy Award winner) Danilo Perez  to see if he could pass by and support Danilo`s Jazz School in Panama, run by the Danilo Perez Foundation.   A workshop was given at Plaza Herrera, and a concert Saturday night at Danilo`s Jazz Bar from the American Trade Hotel.  This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for all the students from the Foundation, and for all jazz fans in Panama.

Here is the note from La Prensa.
