John Santos

Omar Sosa Quarteto AfroCubano

When Omar Sosa talks about his formative influences, he always starts with Camagüey, the inland bastion of Afro-Cuban culture where he was born and raised. Before moving to Havana as a teenager to study piano at the prestigious Escuela Nacional de Música, he devoted himself to percussion and marimba at Camagüey’s rigorous conservatory. He’s traveled far and wide over the past three decades, but always seems to find his way back home. His celebrated Quarteto Afro-Cubano, a virtuosic electro-acoustic ensemble he introduced on 2013’s Real Live (Otá Records), features fellow Camagüeyanos Leandro Saint-Hill on saxophones, flute and vocals, and Ernesto Simpson on drums and vocals (with Mozambique native Childo Tomas providing the elastic pulse on electric bass, kalimba and vocals). The quartet’s lush, mercurial sound takes on new rhythmic dimensions with special guest percussionist John Santos, an invaluable creative catalyst on the Bay Area scene since the 1970s. He and Sosa connected deeply during the pianist’s East Bay residency, touring together internationally and recording the revelatory duo albums Nfumbe: For the Unseen and La Mar.

The Hitmaker Series: Burt Bacharach at Davies Symphony Hall  

As Burt Bacharach continues to recover from a broken arm, his Davies Symphony Hall concert, originally scheduled for Friday, November 11 has been rescheduled for Wednesday, June 7 at 8pm. All tickets purchased for the November 11 concert will be honored at the door on June 7, 2017. 

If you cannot make the rescheduled date, refunds are available. If you would like to make other arrangements, please contact our Box Office at boxoffice@sfjazz.org or call 415-788-7353. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.





We wish Burt Bacharach a speedy recovery and look forward to presenting him at the Davies Symphony Hall on June 7th.

Burt Bacharach

A true giant of American music, Burt Bacharach is one of the greatest popular composers of the 20th century. An eight-time GRAMMY and three-time Oscar winner, Bacharach (often with lyricist Hal David) was responsible for many of the hits that defined pop music from the 1960s to the present, including “Walk on By,” “I Say a Little Prayer,” “That’s What Friends are For,” “Promises, Promises,” and “Do You Know the Way to San Jose” for Dionne Warwick, “Close to You” popularized by the Carpenters, and Patti LaBelle and Michael McDonald’s duet “On My Own,” Tom Jones’ “What’s New, Pussycat?”, Jackie DeShannon’s “What the World Needs Now Is Love,” and dozens more. With a reach beyond the Hit Parade, Bacharach’s midas touch extended to Hollywood, where the theme songs to the 1966 comedy Alfie and 1981’s Arthur, as well as the #1 single “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head” from 1969’s Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid have become part of the American cultural identity. All told, Bacharach has racked up a mindboggling 73 US and 52 UK Top 40 hits over his four decade career. This rare chance to spend an evening with a songwriting legend promises a cross-section of Bacharach’s most beloved music, accompanied by a crack eight-piece band.
