San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM and San Jose Jazz for a live performance with the Afro-Cuban Jazz Cartel on Friday, September 19th, 2014 @ 7:00pm in the Market Plaza.
The San Francisco Bay Area has been a historic hotbed for Latin jazz artists, a mix of part African, part European musical expression. Lead by drummer Brian Andres, this group formed to contribute its efforts to Latin jazz history. The ACJC features Grammy Award winning musicians and esteemed music educators that perform original compositions as well as exciting original arrangements of classics from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico and the United States. They have already released two CD’s with recordings that debuted on the CMJ Jazz Top 40 and will be returning with another in early 2015.
