Issac, Night 1

Three More to Come at SFJAZZ

[all photos by Tom Ehrlich] It was vintage Issac Delgado at SF JAZZ Thursday night, with a 13-piece working band from Cuba--a full complement of young conservatory studs, including a wild new pianist, Victor Campbell, along with three celebrated veterans:

- musical director/tecladista Yusef Díaz of Klímax fame

- Elpidio Chappottín, a founding member of Los Metales del Terror who recorded with NG La Banda when Issac was singing lead

- trombonist Ariel Guillot, who began playing with Issac in the late-90s, taking a break to play with Pupy for a few years.

The show was all in Issac's classic live timba style, thus turning the tributes to Cheo Feliciano and Beny Moré into two of the hottest numbers of the night. The songs spanned Issac's full career, from NG (Necesito una amiga) through the torrid 90s (La sandunguita was truly ferocious) and onwards to La primera plana, Salsa, timba y amor, tracks from the new album, and--in true timba fashion--a few new improvisational tumbaos thrown in for good measure. Chappottín played several smoking hot solos with the soon-to-be-famous young lions hot on his heels. The pianist one-upped Jimi Hendrix by playing part of his solo with his back to the keyboard (almost infinitely harder than JImi's behind-the-neck trick because both hands are doubly reversed from their usual functions). He didn't use his teeth, however. Maybe he will as the weekend progresses! [Kevin Moore]

They're back Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Don't miss it.
