The John Santos Sextet

John Calloway—flute, piano, percussion
Melecio Magdaluyo—saxes
Saul Sierra—bass
Marco Diaz—piano, trumpet
David Flores—drums
John Santos—percussion

Faith and Abstract Improvisation is the theme of this evening's concert, presented in conjunction with Richard Diebenkorn: The Berkeley Years, 1953–1966 and Objects of Belief from the Vatican: Art of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas.

The John Santos Sextet's original compositions and arrangements will emphasize the art of musical improvisation and the tremendous leaps of rhythmic and harmonic faith that are required for this style of Afro-Caribbean jazz. Highly expressive and open-ended passages are woven into the music and can be intimately and personally interpreted by the listener. Many decades of experience playing music—and many years of experience playing music together—allow these artists to navigate freely in this way.
