Al Molina is a San Francisco native, born in 1935 to a musical family, who first made his mark on the local jazz scene in the early 1960s. His first appearance on record was in the 1966 Crestview Records release “Jazz from San Francisco,” and in 1983 he was named Best Jazz Trumpet in San Francisco by the Bay Area Jazz Society. Along the way, he has released three records as a leader, most recently “Amigos Todos” in 2003. He has toured internationally twice and appeared at the Monterey, Russian River and San Jose Jazz Festivals.

Al’s sextet has been together for a number of years, and performs monthly at the Seven Mile House on Bayshore at Geneva, where Al practically created what has come to be regarded one of the Bay Area’s most dynamic jazz venues.

“One of the most lyrical,tasteful and melodic trumpet players on the jazz scene today.”
–Larry Vuckovich

“Molina’s skilled trumpet delves out a warm and polished sound with experienced control. His flugelhorn glows.”
–Mark F. Turner, Jazz Improv Magazine
