100 Legion of Honor Drie at Clement
San Francisco, California 94121

Join esteemed Argentinian vocalist María Volonté and her "Tango Jazz" group for a rare Bay Area appearance as part of the San Francisco Jazz Festival. While there are many young musicians blending tango with techno beats, it’s rare to find an artist advancing the form who is so deeply steeped in tango’s fearless embrace of love, obsession and loss. María Volonté made an immediate mark when her 1996 debut Tango y Otras Pasiones was named one of the top 100 tango recordings of all time. Her third CD , Fuimos, was nominated for a Latin Grammy® and earned her the 2004 Gardel Prize, Argentina’s highest musical award. Volonté’s recent music softens tango’s jagged edges with lilting bossa nova rhythms and lush jazz harmonies, while retaining the music’s essential passion.

Joining Maria will be Murray Low (piano), Michaelle Goerlitz (percussion), John Wittala (bass) and Seth Asarnow (bandoneon).
