There’s plenty in Latin jazz for the ladies to love. Are you onto Tito Puente (Dance Mania) ? How about Cal Tjader (Soul Sauce), Eddie Palmieri (Superimposition), Mongo Santamaría (Sofrito) ? But wait. There are lady Latin jazz power houses as well. Look around a little bit and see if you can sample the music of Jane Bunnett and her band Maqueque, Brazilian pianist and singer Eliane Elias, and salsa, Afro-Caribbean pianist Rebeca Mauleón (shown here) from our own Bay Area.
On this Mother’s Day Sunday, May 13th, Chuy & Chris will take us through a four hour Latin jazz spin, with great music for the ladies. Catch the show on KCSM between 2 and 6 pm.
