There is another side to The Smith Center. An intimate and stylish venue where you can grab a bite, lift a glass and enjoy a true cabaret-style experience. This is Cabaret Jazz, an elegant yet easygoing club where you can be entertained by the finest musicians from across the country. Located across from Reynolds Hall inside the Boman Pavilion, it’s the kind of place where live music can truly come alive.
“Lucie Arnaz is not good — she’s great!… She sings like a dream… a fabulous saloon singer. Her voice, with its muted trumpet tones and charming trill, is a remarkable instrument.” —New York Post
LATIN ROOTS is an eclectic Latin—American mix in English and Spanish highlighting songs from Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and Johnny Mercer alongside tunes by Dan Fogelberg, Agustín Lara, Rafael Hernandez, Margarita Lecuona and Desi Arnaz, himself. Critics raved: “Latin Roots sizzles with sophistication and sassy spice.” This show is the very subtle throb of the Latin rhythm itself.
