Pete Escovedo Latin Jazz Orchestra "Back to the Bay" Release
"With this new project, I wanted to reach back and taste all those wonderful flavors of music that sadly aren’t as common as they used to be." — Pete Escovedo After a sold-out, through-the-roof performance for Freight & Salvage's New Year's Eve, legendary Latin Jazz Timbalero Pete Escovedo returns on March 24 for a record release party for his new album, "Back to the Bay", which celebrates the music scene in the Bay Area from Pete's first gig at the California Hotel’s Gold Room in 1953 to the diverse blend of music which had emerged by the ‘70s and is now known as the Bay Area Sound. Pete Escovedo breaks down the barriers between Smooth Jazz, Salsa, Latin Jazz and contemporary music. Join us in welcoming The Pete Escovedo Latin Jazz Orchestra back to The Freight for an evening of favorites and new songs.
