Danilo Pérez’s Panama 500 @ Jazz Standard This Week

The ever-engaging pianist loves to dissect his cultural history – the traditions of Panama help define his work as a bandleader. His latest album offers the longest look yet, using a killer band to scrutinize everything from Balboa’s historic arrival to rural village frolic. It’s both impressive as scholarship and engaging as performance.  This gig’s rhythm section speaks for itself, but watch out for the violinist, he’s sneaky.

7:30 pm & 9:30 pm $20. Jazz Standard. 116 East 27 Street. 212-576-2232.
