Brian Andres is a San Francisco based drummer and band leader. His group - the Afro Cuban Jazz Cartel ( ACJC for short ) - is about to release their second album, simply titled "San Francisco". The record features some of the top players, composers and arrangers in the greater SF Bay Area. Known for not putting a picture of himself on the front cover of his records, Brian steps into the foreground with this video and gives us the pleasure of his insight and artistry. "San Francisco" is an album to be experienced like fine wine, delivering complexities over time and repeated listening. Thankfully this video enables the listener to peel back a few layers and really get to hear Brian speak his true voice. Recommended. -- Michael Lazarus of
