Latin jazz in its many forms and expressions will be highlighted in this overview by percussionist and bandleader John Santos, in partnership with our friends at MoAD and the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival.
The Miles Smiles Hotplate Festival pays tribute to the band members of Miles Davis' Quintet: Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. On Thursday we will highlight the great quintet as a unit with Matt Clark's re-interpretation of Miles Smiles, followed by three nights of notable Bay Area musicians re-imagining a monumental recording each member of the great quintet made as a leader.
