SFJAZZ Fridays at Five. 5:00pm PST/8:00pm EST

Gonzalo Rubalcaba is the most celebrated Cuban pianist of his generation, a virtuoso of jaw-dropping technical command whose improvisational prowess helped pave the way for the brilliant wave of Latin American jazz musicians that followed in his wake. One of them was Cuban conguero Pedrito Martinez, who’s played an essential role infusing Afro-Cuban currents into American music since settling in New York City in 1998, recording and performing with artists including Wynton Marsalis, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen, and Sting. This performance, filmed in September 2017 at the start of the SFJAZZ Center's 2017-18 Season, is a telepathic duo encounter and an intoxicating journey into the thrumming heart of Cuban rhythm.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
