JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2012 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Annie Wells at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

The blurb in the Jazz Fest program cited Steve Gadd and Herlin Riley as fans of the Afro-Cuban rumba band, Pedrito Martinez. Despite a few sound problems, bad enough to force them to stop in the middle of a song, this four piece (I was sitting so close I could only get three in at a time) was all smiles and as energetic as a new wave band. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
