Ever since the first time I heard Roberto Fonseca on the radio, I have been a fan of his music. Por fin I had the opportunity to hear the latest version of his group perform twice, once at Monterey Jazz Festival as the opening act of the festival and once opening for Orquesta Buena Vista Socail Club in San Francisco. Both were incredible performances, my favorite being the one in Monterey.
Roberto's music is a unique mixture of Afro-Cuban, Jazz, hip hop, rock, world music and more. His group was a great way to get this world famous jazz festival going on a high note.
What follows are a large group of photos from Monterey Jazz Festival.

Never heard of Joel but he was top shelf and Yandy used to play with Havana D'Primera
One of the top guitarists in Cuba, played with Irakere, Arturo Sandoval, Hilario Duran and others.
