Jazz Caliente

Presented by Jazz in the Neighborhood at Marin Country Mart, Larkspur CA

Sep 28 2018
Jazz Caliente

Afro-Cuban and Brazilian jazz featuring original compositions as well as arrangements of jazz and Latin masters

Founded by Lee Waterman and Tommy Kesecker in 1997, Jazz Caliente performs Afro-Cuban and Brazilian jazz featuring original compositions by Waterman as well as arrangements of jazz and Latin masters such as Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Wes Montgomery, Tito Puente, and Sergio Mendes.

Joining Waterman on guitar and Kesecker on vibes will be James Mahone on sax along with bassist Bill Lanphier, percussionist Javier Navarrette , and drummer Bill Belasco.

Trademarks of the Jazz Caliente style are tight arrangements and infectious grooves. Basing its chordal foundation on vibes and guitar produces a brighter tonality and allows more space inside the music than with a traditional piano-based format. Their latest CD release is Olhos Verdes.

This concert is part of the Friday Night Jazz series at Marin Country Mart.


This is a Guaranteed Fair Wage Fund event where each musician will be paid $150 in advance. Jazz in the Neighborhood makes this possible by subsidizing 40% of their pay. Marin Country Mart guarantees the rest. For additional information, please contact Marin Country Mart.
