John Santos Presents Papo Vazquez' Pirates & Troubadours at SFJAZZ Center
Fri, March 22, 2013
Santos has played an essential role in expanding Latin jazz’s rhythmic lexicon beyond the foundational Cuban grooves. His programming as a Resident Artistic Director reflects his pan-Caribbean sensibility.
The formidable trombonist, arranger and composer Papo Vasquez presents the West Coast debut of Pirates Troubadours, an eight-piece Afro Puerto Rican jazz combo that melds Caribbean percussion with a blazing jazz horn section on material inspired by traditional Puerto Rican forms.
