A Latin Jazz New Year's Eve

Dec 27, 2012

There's nothing quite like a Latin Jazz celebration of any occasion.  It's the ultimate party music!  If you're in Seattle, WA or in Oakland, CA, you can spend New Year's Eve with one of the masters of the Latin groove:

Poncho Sanchez Latin Jazz Band at Jazz Alley, Seattle

Multiple Grammy award winner, and this year's Lifetime Achievement Award recipient from the Latin Grammys, Poncho and his band mix jazz, latin and soul for a tasty and dance-able feast.

Pete Escovedo & Sons Latin Jazz Orchestra at Yoshi's, Oakland

Pete Escovedo has been a major force in Latin music since the late 1960's, and his band features some of the finest players on the West coast, including members of his endlessly talented family.

Happy New Year!  Stay tuned for more great Latin Jazz in 2013 on Jazz Caliente, Thursdays at 2pm on KPLU's Mid Day Jazz!
