2010 Latin Jazz Tardeada, a free outdoor concert with Grammy-winning conguero Poncho Sanchez & His Latin Jazz Band on Sunday, October 3, 2010 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm at Yerba Buena Gardens in downtown San Francisco.
“Tardeada,” meaning afternoon gathering or party, will be a celebration of the YBGF’s 10th Anniversary and the grand finale of the Festival’s annual Latin Jazz Series, a major program component of the Festival.
For this event, YBGF will be celebrating its own anniversary along with the 40th Anniversary of the Mission District’s Galería de la Raza. Since 1970, Galería de la Raza has been at the forefront of raising the visibility and appreciation of Chicano and Latino arts and culture in the Bay Area and beyond. For this performance, Sanchez and his formidable combo will alternate between dance–inducing mambo beats, scorching salsa soul and tightly arranged jazz numbers plus material from his twenty-fourth recording on Concord Records, Psychedelic Blues.
