Salsa in the Square ft. Latin Jazz Youth Ensemble

August 12, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The Latin Jazz Youth Ensemble of San Francisco, or LJYE, is a performing group of talented musicians ages ten to 18. They play Latin jazz classics and original compositions at a level that has landed them gigs at the San Jose Jazz Festival, the KCSM Jazz Festival, KGO Radio, Yerba Buena Gardens, SF Museum of Modern Art, Paramount’s Great America and the world-renown jazz club, Yoshi’s.

Despite their youth, several generations of ensemble musicians have already contributed to the legacy of Latin jazz history by recording three CDs which feature original compositions by the students. In 2005, the group recorded their first CD, “LJYE Live at Yoshi’s,” followed in 2009 by “Generaciones, and their latest recording, “Con Mis Manos” released in 2015. The CDs present the student musicians playing alongside notable special guests such as Armando Peraza, Jerry Gonzalez, John Santos, Jeff Cressman, and of course, LJYE music director and multi-instrumentalist John Calloway.
