Master percussionist, educator, activist, and composer John Santos has been part of the lifeblood of the Bay Area music scent for more than four decades, and has played an essential role in expanding Latin jazz’s rhythmic lexicon. Santos is truly a part of the SFJAZZ family, having performed at the very first Jazz in the City festival in 1983 and helping open the SFJAZZ Center in 2013 as part of the first crop of SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Directors. We were honored to present John’s 60th Birthday Celebration as part of our fourth season in the SFJAZZ Center in November 2015 and broadcast as part of Fridays at Five in August 2020, featuring his longstanding sextet and a number of special guests including legendary timbalero Orestes Vilató, violinist Anthony Blea, and vocalists Destani Wolf and Rico Pabón.
Support John Santos. Support SFJAZZ's mission.
Proceeds from this purchase and contributions to the 50/50 Fund will be split 50/50 with John Santos and SFJAZZ.
