Doug Lawrence’s Nuevo Mexicanos


Fri May 10 2024


7:30 pm - 9:30 pm



Albuquerque’s own multi-Grammy-winning tenor saxophonist Doug Lawrence, the featured soloist with The Count Basie Orchestra for the past 25+ years, returns to Outpost with his New Mexican bandmates – Steve Figueroa, piano; Paul Gonzales, trumpet; Milo Jaramillo, bass; Ricky Carrido, congas and David Flores, drums – the group he has dubbed his Nuevo Mexicanos band. Always adding a new twist to their performances, for this show, they will be playing new material and featuring two special guests – “The Queen of New Mexico Salsa,” Jackie Zamora with Liza Flores singing backup to Jackie, along with their signature hard bop and Latin jazz tunes they are known for. Besides his work with the Count Basie Orchestra, Doug Lawrence has also worked and recorded with a veritable “who’s who of jazz” including Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Goodman, Sarah Vaughan, Joe Williams, Nancy Wilson, Joey DeFrancesco, Aretha Franklin and many others. He continues to tour and record with many of today’s top names in jazz.

The event is finished.
