"...a raucous 10-piece ensemble which nails its distinctive blend of Afro-Cuban rhythm and freewheeling improvisation." – The New York Times
"This group combined the Latin and avant-garde traditions in unheard ways, sinking its teeth into everything from Arkestra pandemonium to deep Afro-Cuban grooves to long-form composition. This music was full of roof-raising pleasures but also artful decision-making." – JazzTimes
The 10 piece strong 'little big band' Positive Catastrophe was founded in 2007 by cornetist/composer Taylor Ho Bynum and percussionist/vocalist/composer Abraham Gomez-Delgado. Uniquely fusing Latin and avant-garde jazz, the group enlists many of New York’s most adventurous jazz and salsa musicians.
