Live Music: Brian Andres & the Afro-Cuban Jazz Cartel Friday Sept 6th @ 7pm

249590 170314666364425 6936295 nSan Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join San Jose Jazz and SPSM for a live performance by Brian Andres and the afro-cuban jazz cartel on Friday, September 6th, 2013 @ 7pm.

Latin Jazz. It’s been called La Combinación Perfecta. The perfect combination. The coming together of two worlds. The blending of two musical traditions. Jazz, a truly original art form born in the United States, espouses the freedom in music that its birth nation represents to the world. Latin: a generic term meant to encompass the numerous dance and folkloric musical styles of the Caribbean. Latin Jazz: part African, part European, it is to some, the ultimate American musical expression.

The San Francisco Bay Area has been a historic hotbed for Latin Jazz artists. From Cal Tjader to Armando Peraza, John Santos to Rebeca Mauleon. The Latin jazz tradition has thrived in the Bay Area. It is from this tradition that The Afro-Cuban Jazz Cartel arrives. Lead by drummer Brian Andres, the group was formed to contribute its own mark to that storied history. Comprised of some of the most sought after musicians and music educators that the Bay Area has to offer, the ACJC never fails to perform its music at the highest level. The repertoire consists of original compositions as well as exciting original arrangements of classics from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico and the United States. The group is equally capable of performing a dance or concert repertoire, as well as educational presentations such as lectures, workshops or instruction focused on the musical instrumentation, composition and arranging or cultural significance and history of the music they perform.
