The long overdue First Annual Mission Latin Jazz Festival features a showcase of exceptional musicians and bands from the Mission district, the Bay Area, California, the US, Latin America, and beyond. An all-star band of Mission district musicians from the 1970s is paired with the Latin Jazz Youth Ensemble, the next generation of SF Latin Jazz musicians. The 20-piece big-band Pacific Mambo Orchestra is paired with VL Trio. The festival strives to open several dialogues within the Latin Jazz community, a dialogue regarding the recent Grammy restructuring decisions and re-instatement of the Latin Jazz category, and to open a discussion on the questions: what is Latin Jazz? What does it mean? With the inclusion of Laura Rebolloso and Ensemble Marinero from Mexico, playing a version of Mexican-Jazz, we invite a discussion on whether Latin Jazz only includes Cuban and Puerto Rican mixtures of Jazz, only Caribbean Jazz, or can Latin Jazz include influences from all over Latin America?
