The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s Friday night Jazz Concerts continue tomorrow night featuring Pete Escovedo Latin Jazz Orchestra.
From the LACMA website:
Legendary percussionist Pete Escovedo and his all-star band open the 2014 Jazz at LACMA season. Escovedo is an artist who broke down the barriers between jazz, salsa, Latin jazz, and contemporary music, and he has been a regular feature of the music industry for more than 50 years. Escovedo began his career in the 1970s with guitarist Carlos Santana and has performed and toured with many artists, including Herbie Hancock, Mongo Santamaria, Bobby McFerrin, Cal Tjader, Al Jarreau, Arturo Sandoval, Poncho Sanchez, Chick Corea, and Tito Puente. At this inaugural performance for 2014 Jazz at LACMA, Escovedo pays tribute to his friend and colleague George Duke, who passed away last year.
Jazz at LACMA starts every Friday night at 6pm in the BP Grand Pavilion. Tickets are free, and don’t require any reservations. Parking is available underneath LACMA or across the street (and that might cost you a little bit).
Food options, including Haute Dogs (Sausages) or Tacos (bring the Tacos back!), Sangria, Beer and other adult beverages (and non-adult beverages) will be on sale. Ray and Stark Bar will be open as well, as well as the many food trucks along Wilshire Avenue. You can also bring your own picnic, as well as your own chair or blankets.
