LL7 – Latin Jazz features authentic Afro-Cuban Jazz, New York salsa, authentic Cha-Cha, Mambo and other Latin inspired jazz styles. LL7 adds energy and excitement to Jazz!

LL7 features sax, trumpet, trombone and vocals driven by the rhythmic pulse of piano, acoustic bass, drums and latin percussion. LL7 has also developed a loyal following of Latin Dancers from local dance clubs. They play in the best-known jazz clubs in Detroit, including The Dirty Dog, Cliff Bell’s, Baker’s Keyboard Lounge, and the Music Hall Jazz Café.
