Led by 7X Grammy nominee as a leader - drummer, percussionist,  composer, arranger, educator, activist Bobby Sanabria's 21 piece Multiverse Big Band is a musical juggernaut that easily straddles multiple worlds from complex concert repertoire to hardcore dance music. All of their CD's have been Grammy nominated and their new double CD release, WEST SIDE STORY REIMAGINED, a total Latin jazz reworking of Maestro Leonard Bernstein's iconic score, is proving to be their greatest work being hailed by the critics as a masterpiece. Partial proceeds from its sale go to the Jazz Foundation of America's Puerto Rican Hurricane Relief Fund for musicians. This upcoming concert at Harlem's Marcus Garvey Park will feature excerpts from West Side Story Reimagined as well as new works covering everything from salsa, samba, bomba, bossa, funk, Latin boogaloo and more fused with jazz and the majesty of the big band for an explosive end of summer dance party.

"There’s every reason to hope that Steven Spielberg’s remake of “West Side Story” will improve upon the 1961 film, but I doubt if we’ll ever hear a more thrilling interpretation of that immortal score  than that of the Bobby Sanabria Multiverse Big Band."

Will Friedwald-Wall Street Journal 

"Congrats on the album of the year!"

What The Press Is Saying About
“West Side Story Reimagined”

"It’s the most ambitious reimagining of the music I have ever heard!” 
Jamie Bernstein
 
"You have never heard such an ambitious, complex, and satisfying remake of that classic. Sanabria, an amazing drummer, draws deep from his Puerto Rican heritage to give this Leonard Bernstein masterpiece a roots-authentic update that’s heavy on Latin jazz influences and full of peppy, energetic rhythms."
Tom Henry – Toledo Blade
 
"Among other things, it’s a master class in Latin rhythms. Just get it"
Ken McCarthy - Jazz on the Tube
 
"If you're a fan of either Latin jazz or West Side Story, this album is a feast of those flavors."
Marc Phillips – thevinylanarchist.com/blogspot
 
"The infusion of Latin rhythms that Mr. Sanabria uses is a big part of what makes this album so stunning."
   Dick Metcalf – Contemporary Fusion Reviews
 
 "it’s a love letter to Bernstein as well as a reclamation, tracing his evocation back to the source."
Nate Chinen - WBGO

 
"A triumphant, Latin-flavored reimagining of Leonard Bernstein’s masterwork West Side Story.
Bill Milkowski - Downbeat

A captivating and fulfilling recording that more than reimagines this enduring masterpiece. 
Pierre Giroux Audiophile Audition

West Side Story Reimagined is Bobby’s retelling of the story in his way, seen through the eyes of love and gratitude and, often, uncertainty.
   As Bobby says, this is “a reimagining from the perspective of a Jazz musician, a Latin musician, and a native Nuyorican son who is proud to say he is from the city that defines aché, hipness, and cool. Aché is Energy.
   In my review of Bobby’s album, Multiverse, I said that “Bobby is a prophet of life.” That was never truer than with West Side Story Reimagined.
Travis Rogers, Jr. is The Jazz Owl

This set includes an accompanying 16 page booklet containing rare photographs of Maestro Leonard Bernstein, along with the timeless music of West Side Story featuring the rhythms of various Latin American countries with exciting breaking-down-the-wall instrumental big band arrangements all done through the lens of the Latin jazz continuum.

 

It’s the most ambitious reimagining of the music I have ever heard!”
- Jamie Bernstein

 

Partial proceeds from this special commemorative set will be donated to the Jazz Foundation of America's Puerto Rico Relief Fund. The island has been completely devastated by hurricanes Irma and Maria and the government’s response has been less than adequate. What better way to help my ancestral homeland Puerto Rico and its people, than through the music of West Side Story Reimagined. - Bobby Sanabria
