LATIN JAZZ | Tiempo Libre 

It's another cold, snowy weekend morning as I write this, so the thought of spending a couple of hours with a group that's been described as "a multi-cultural aphrodisiac" sounds pretty good. When the members of Tiempo Libre were music students in Havana, they learned the sounds of American pop, jazz, and classical music by secretly listening to Miami radio stations, forbidden by the Castro government. Combining them with Cuban musical traditions, they soon became a sensation. Tiempo Libre has performed in the United States everywhere from "The Tonight Show" to the Ravinia Festival, has produced an original musical based on its members' life stories, and has earned three Grammy nominations.

Tiempo Libre performs Saturday, February 10, at the Nazareth College Arts Center, 4245 East Avenue. 8 p.m. $25-$35.;
