“…His work as co-director of the acclaimed Machete Ensemble and a long string of resident salsa bands has been formidable.” – Latin Beat Magazine

Multi-instrumentalist John Calloway is a cornerstone of the Bay Area Latin jazz scene. Adept at flute, piano, and percussion, Calloway was a founding member of John Santos’s Machete Ensemble and has collaborated with a who’s-who of local Latin jazz innovators, including Pete Escovedo, Jesus Diaz, Rebeca Mauleon, and Wayne Wallace. He’s also performed with legends like Dizzy Gillespie and Israel “Cachao” Lopez. He has recently traveled to South America with the Chilean jazz groups Quijerema and Teatro Arcoiris for the critically acclaimed theatre piece Poeta Pan, based on the life and poetry of Pablo Neruda. As a performer and composer, he has earned three Grammy nominations for recordings with the Machete Ensemble and the Ritmo y Candela series with Cuban percussionists Changuito, Patato, and Orestes Vilato. His most recent album, The Code, is available on Bombo Music. John is also a dedicated teacher with an M.A. in music education from San Francisco State University, and teaches both locally and in Cuba. He is currently pursuing a doctorate in multi-cultural education at the University of San Francisco.

(But Were Afraid to Ask)Stanford Jazz
Sunday, July 6 | 2:30 pm | Dinkelspiel Auditorium
Tickets: Free
If you want to enhance your understanding of jazz or get inside the head of a jazz musician, this interactive concert is the place to do it. Starting with a well-known standard such as “Autumn Leaves” or “Take the A Train,” SJW’s founder Jim Nadel will lead an ensemble of top notch players in a tour of different jazz styles including swing, Latin and hard bop, analyzing the arrangements and highlighting the differences in approach. The inner workings of how jazz is constructed will be revealed from the artist’s perspective, as the musicians interact and respond to each other while commentary is provided in real time. Questions are encouraged in this lively and education-oriented format, designed to add value to the listening experience and facilitate a deeper enjoyment of this rich and complex musical form.

“…a strong and versatile voice along with a style that fits the standards she interprets perfectly.” – L.A. Jazz Scene

Sony Holland is a singer who knows her way around the standards. With a style that is once sophisticated and emotionally direct, her interpretations of the great American songbook show a deep respect and love for the material while adding an unmistakable spark of personality. Originally from northern Minnesota, Sony fell in love with jazz while spending a year in Paris and has earned a devoted following worldwide with her renditions of standards, contemporary classics, and original songs. She has made the Bay Area her home since 2003, although she now performs internationally, including extensive concert tours and residencies in Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Bangkok. Her most recent album, Swing, Bossas, Ballads & Blues is an intimate set of 16 of Sony’s favorite songs from many different eras and musical traditions, which she brings together with impeccable musicianship and true feeling.
