One of the main exponents of Latin jazz for the past 30 years, Marlon Simon and the Nagual Spirits will present the highest caliber of original Latin jazz compositions. Marlon has produced seven internationally acclaimed CDs as a leader/musical director and has toured in the USA, Europe, Canada, and South America presenting the Nagual Spirits Latin jazz message. The band was selected to present international concerts representing the excellence and integrity of the musical art forms born in the USA (in this case, Latin jazz), a program sponsored by the State Department. Marlon has also performed as a sideman or guest with different artists such as Paquito de Rivera, Hilton Ruiz, Jerry Gonzalez, Bobby Watson, and Chucho Valdez, among others. He has solid experience in his field and has also developed a career as an educator. More information about this project is available at Photo by Juan Ramirez.
