SUMMIT, NJ - Two-time Latin GRAMMY nominated saxophonist Julio Botti and his South American Jazz Project will perform July 22 at MONDO. Botti has taken his love of South American rhythms and modern jazz and created an electrifying new quartet that fuses the ethnic rhythms of the Southern Cone with Jazz.

In a performance that begins at 8 p.m., Argentinean saxophonist Botti will be joined by the South American Jazz Project, including a quartet of three other young forces in the New York City jazz scene; Andrew Baird (guitar), Eduardo Withrington (keys), and Tiago Michelin (drums). 

Botti (saxophone, clarinet and flute player) was born in Bell Ville, Argentina. In 1996 he graduated from Escuela de Musica Popular La Colmena in Cordoba, Argentina, and went on to study classical saxophone in Cuba at La Escuela Nacional de Arte de La Habana. From Cuba, he moved to Madrid where he recorded various albums and took to teaching in various parts of Europe and South America. Most recently he has been dedicating his time to New York City public schools as a woodwind teacher.

Botto was nominated for a Latin GRAMMY at the 14th and 17th annual Latin GRAMMY Awards, respectively, for Best Tango Album "Tango Nostalgias" in 2013 & "Sax to Tango" in 2016. 

Concert tickets are priced at $20 in advance, $25 at the door, and are available by visiting brownpapertickets.com. Reservations and further information are also available by calling the Teatro Si box office at 908-301-9496 or purchasing tickets in person at MONDO, located at 426 Springfield Avenue.
