Jazz it up
Annual Heritage Music Festival set for April 27 at CSUMB

The community is invited to an evening of jazz on the campus of California State University, Monterey Bay as the annual Heritage Music Festival returns on April 27.

The free concert will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. in the Black Box Cabaret on Foruth Street near the intersection of Gen. Jim Moore Boulevard and Inter-Garrison Road.

The concert features John Santos and his sextet; and the CSUMB Jazz Ensemble with special guest soloist, Don Pendergrass, on piano.

Santos, a five-time Grammy nominee, is a San Francisco Bay area mainstay, a musical anchor and outspoken ambassador of the city's active Latin jazz scene. He is an exponent of Afro-Latin music through innovative use of traditional forms and instruments with contemporary music. The John Santos Sextet appeared at the Monterey Bay Festival in 2011.

Pendergrass, a pianist and vocalist and longtime member of the Roger Eddy Band, has four appearances at the Monterey Jazz Festival to his credit. He is a stalwart of the local jazz scene.

The concert is sponsored by CSUMB's Music and Performing Arts Department, College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, and the university┬┐s Special Event Fund.

While the concert is free, a parking permit must be purchased from a nearby dispenser. Driving directions and a campus map are available at csumb.edu/map. Additionally, I.D. is required for entry. CSUMB students with Otter ID of any age are welcome; all others must be 18+.
