Snug Harbor presents Amina Figarova Sextet

Location: Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro

Address: 626 Frenchmen St., New Orleans, LA 70116

Time: 8:00 pm

The elegant and graceful Amina Figarova is without doubt one of the most productive jazz composers and talented jazz pianist from Europe. Amina began playing piano as a child in Baku, Azerbaijan and has since traveled the world, studying as a classical concert pianist at the Baku Conservatory and the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Figarova’s crisp, light finger-dancing across the piano keys displays her dynamic range and technical skills. Backed by her talented Dutch sextet on this evening, Figarova’s style breathes new life into post-bebop jazz popularized in the 1960s
