Mexico City's temple of hot licks, the Zinco Jazz Club, is hidden in the basement of an old bank in the Historic Center, a fitting location. It is perfect because the Art Deco interior transports patrons back to 1920s New York City and the old security vaults of the space make for excellent acoustics. The passionate owners of the club present national and international jazz stars like saxophonist Paquito D'Rivera, trumpet player Ingrid Jensen, Leo Corona's Latin Jazz All Stars, and Todd Clouser's A Love Electric. Entertaining on little stage in front of a classic red velvet curtain are new young talents like the fusion artists, Tres Tristes Tangos, and such diverse voices as funky soul band El Soul, and the conceptual rock bank, the Twin Tones. Light snacks and cocktails are available. Zinco Jazz Club is close to the Torre Latino Americana and Iglesia de San Felipe Neri.
