Stanford Afro-Latin Jazz Ensemble

This is an Archive of a Past Event

The acclaimed Stanford Afro-Latin Jazz Ensemble, directed by Murray Low, presents its Fall concert. The program will consist of a unique blend of traditional and contemporary songs spanning the entire scope of the Afro-Latin genre, mixed together in new and exciting ways.  The repertoire includes songs composed or performed by greats such as John Coltrane, Chucho Valdés, Sonora Ponceña, Felix Chappotin, and John Calloway. The music spans almost a century, from the dance halls of the early '20s, to the rich son montuno tradition of the '40s, through classic jazz and salsa from the '60s and '70s, up to modern-day timba.
