Stanford Live hosts Juno-winning, multi-Grammy nominated saxophonist Jane Bunnett and her band Maqueque, made up of Cuba’s leading young women jazz musicians, for a community jam session. All are welcome!
Bring your instrument or voice! If you play an amplified instrument, please bring your own amplifier. Jane and the band will cover different Cuban styles as they relate to jazz, including Mambo, Danzon, Cha Cha Cha, and Rumba. They’ll call standards like Afro Blue, Footprints, A Night in Tunisia, Oye Como Va, Body and Soul (Cha, Cha, Cha) and you’ll learn simple originals from the band.
Open to all levels of experience! Walk-ins are welcome but pre-registration is suggested so the band can plan the best session for you.
