This from in-the-know correspondent Tristram Lozaw:

Returning from a European tour with Boston’s Either/Orchestra world jazz ensemble, drummer Vincente Lebron (below) was stopped at Logan Airport by Immigration and Naturalization Services, which, under direction from Homeland Security, seized his passport and green card.

Lebron, who was born in the Dominican Republic and has lived in the United States since 1970 (in Boston since 1974), was placed in removal proceedings and has been sequestered at the South Bay Correctional Center since June 9. To help raise defense funds, 15 bands and singers including Orchestra Morphine, Charlie Kohlhase, Club D'Elf, and Russ Gershon of E/O perform a benefit show Wednesday night at 8 in the Ryles dancehall in Cambridge. It's $10 to get in -- not a bad price to help right a wrong.
