Sammy Figueroa & Aymée Nuviola

Happening in Judson’s Live – Dr. Phillips Center’s newest and most intimate music room. Inspired by the world’s most legendary listening rooms, Judson’s Live is where atmosphere, acoustics and culinary excellence collide, bringing unheard-of listening experiences (with unrivaled cocktails and sharable plates to match.) The attitude is low-key, highly creative and always with a stylish slant. On select nights, guests can experience Judson’s Live and discover new music all at a price suited for our most important audience – everyone.

Sammy Figueroa has long been regarded as one of the world's great musicians. As one of music's leading percussionists, he has played on countless records and is well-known for his versatility in a multitude of musical styles. Besides playing with some of the world's greatest pop stars, such as David Bowie, Chaka Khan and Mariah Carey, Sammy has also played with a multitude of distinguished jazz artists including Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Quincy Jones, George Benson, and many more. (His relationship with Miles Davis is described at length in Miles' own words in his autobiography.)

When Sammy plays percussion, he tells a story, creating a playful conversation with other musicians and taking the listener on a musical journey. As one of the world's greatest congueros he is currently considered to be the most likely candidate to inherit the mantles of Mongo Santamaria and Ray Barretto.
