About the Artist:
GFronted by Nelson Bello, his eponymous Latin Jazz Trio enjoys performing their Afro-Cuban and Caribbean-flavored jazz.
A well-known Latin percussionist and Hartford native, Nelson began his musical studies at the Hartford Conservatory Jazz Summer Program at the age of 13 and the Performing Arts Academy in Hartford. At the age of 15 he traveled to Cuba for the International Jazz Festival (with Latin Flavor, now better known as Insight) and invited guest pianist Chucho Valdez.
Over the years, Nelson performed with the likes of Andy Gonzalez, Cheo Feliciano, Ismael Miranda, Tony Vega, Charles Flores, Zaccai and Luques Curtis, among others.
