Saturday brings an explosive evening of Latin jazz, as pianist, composer and SFJAZZ Education Director Rebeca Mauleón presents her Afro Kuban Fusion project with a venerable cast of Latin music greats including percussionists Jesús Diaz and Carlos Caro, bassist Gary Brown, guitarist Vernon Black and Cuban drum sensation Jimmy Branly. Conjuring the eclecticism of the legendary Irakere in the spirit of neo-afro-jazz-rock, this performance will get the blood pumping like no other, and the dance floor will be open! Opening the show is the VNote Ensemble, a superb acoustic quartet that seamlessly blends the jazz tradition with the folk rhythms of Venezuela
