JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2012 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Locarno at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

We stuck our heads in the tent, sort of afraid to go in the front door because the sound system is so big, and found a band we had not read anything about. They sang a few songs in Spanish but spoke English between songs. The guitar player sounded Mexican and they introduced the trumpet player as being from Cuba but the rhythm section could have been backing John Cougar. (They did a Cumbia without the Cumbia beat.) Locarno is an international pop band and a lot of fun. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
