Tom Ehrlich - 2014 San Jose Jazz Fest Sunday

SAN JOSÉ JAZZ FESTIVAL

SUNDAY AUGUST 10, 2014 PART 1

© PHOTOS BY TOM EHRLICH 2014 

Sunday of the festival could have been called Pedrito Martínez Group day, since they played 3 times. I should not have, but I saw and photographed all three shows.  Just never get enough of that group.  In addition to Pedrito and company, my report includes the premier Plena group from Puerto Rico, Viento de Agua, Pancho Sanchez with John Santos and Pete Escevedo with a tribute to Armando Peraza and a festival youth orchestra.  

Pancho Sanchez, Pedrito's second and third performances and Yusseff Breffe Rodríguez 's great photos will be posted in part two of Sunday's report.  Yusseff is a fantastic new timba.com photographer.

VIENTO DE AGUA

Considered by many to be the preimier plena group in the world, Viento De Agua lead by Tito Matos, performed at the festival twice.  It was their first west coast appearance.  Playing to a packed house, they performed a high energy crowd pleasing performance, living up to their reputation.
