Plaza Reception: June 9 at 7 PM | Included with the cost of your ticket
Jose Rizo’s “Jazz on the Latin Side All Stars” is a 15-piece all-star ensemble made up of legendary figures, world-class studio musicians, great jazz artists, and popular bandleaders. This tight ensemble was formed a few months after a big jam session at B. B. Kings on the Universal City Walk in the Los Angeles area. They have performed at the Playboy Jazz Festival, Yoshi's, The Greek Theatre and at all the top local jazz venues.
Celebrate summer with the incredible sounds of Latin Jazz! Start your night with a light bite reception on the Brea Civic & Cultural Arts Plaza before stepping inside the Curtis for the concert. A new part of our programming, we aim to pair distinctive names in Latin Jazz with the intimate setting of the Curtis! The "Jazz on the Latin Side All Stars" is a power-house Latin jazz ensemble founded and led by Jose Rizo. This versatile ensemble feels as comfortable playing progressive latin jazz as it does playing tremendous salsa dura.
