Jaime Valle, with guest, Alex Acua, Justo Almario, Russel Blake & Allan Phillips

The Athenaeum's jazz program returns to the University Heights Studio of the Athenaeum School of the Arts (located at 4441 Park Blvd.) for a special evening of jazz led by one of Southern California's leading jazz guitarists, Jaime Valle. Voted many times over as San Diego's top jazz artist by the San Diego Music Awards, Jaime Valle is a longtime favorite of local jazz lovers, known for his mastery of Brazilian and Afro-Cuban styles and for his skills as a leader of some of the area's best Latin jazz ensembles. Valle has recorded and performed with leading jazz artists including Dave Valentin, Poncho Sanchez, Mongo Santamaria, and Tania Maria. The San Diego Union-Tribune wrote, “Valle has been on a path of musical excellence for the past 25 years." JazzTimes commented, “...Valle's live performances are works of art - beautifully paced, well crafted, and surging with intelligent musical energy."

For this Memorial Day weekend concert, Valle has enlisted his longtime bandmember, Venezuelan-born keyboardist Allan Phillips, along with special guests Colombian-born saxophonist Justo Almario, Peruvian drummer Alex Acua and bassist Russel Blake

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!
