Gabriel Alegria and the Un Rezo Jazz Sextet. Complete with cajons, quijadas and zapateo dancing, Un Rezo, featuring master percussionist Hugo Alcazar, has placed Afro-Peruvian rhythmic concepts and the legacy of African-influenced music from coastal Peru solidly into mainstream jazz language for the first time. The importance of this has been compared to the Brazilian and Cuban musical influences which changed jazz music in the 20th century.
Doors open at 7:00 p.m.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
