Join Legendary percussionists Pete Escovedo and John Santos for an evening of Latin Jazz as part of the Healdsburg Jazz Festival's "Latin Jazz On The Green". Also appearing in the concert is the incomparable Eddie Palmieri and his band.
Pete Escovedo has been a Northern California institution since the late 1950s, when he performed widely with his younger siblings, bassist Phil and drummer Coke in the Escovedo Brothers, a pioneering Bay Area Latin jazz combo. From his work in the groundbreaking Latin rock bands Santana and Azteca through his decades leading his own popular Latin jazz orchestra.
Like Escovedo, John Santos grew up in the Bay Area, soaking up music from the streets of San Francisco's Mission District. By the mid-1970s, he was an emerging force on the local Latin music scene, leading a succession of bands. From Orquesta Tipica Cienfuegos to Batachanga to the Macheté Ensemble, he became the Bay Area's leading educator, practitioner and resident historian of Afro-Caribbean musical forms.
Also appearing are Murray Low (piano), Roger Glenn (flute), Curtis Ohlson (bass) and Paul Van Wageningen (drums).
