Drummer/percussionist/composer/bandleader/educator Annette A. Aguilar, born and raised in San Francisco, has been a force on the New York scene for decades, notably with her band StringBeans. Here in San Francisco, you can often catch her performing at Bird & Beckett and around town with her Beans on the Left!
She returns home to San Francisco several times a year to be with family and play with favorite local associates including, tonight, pianist Murray Low and bassist Mike Arnold.
Annette’s current association in NYC with BronXBandA, led by pianist/composer Arturo O’Farrill, has produced a rich array of concerts and recordings. O’Farrill’s own associations in Latin jazz start with his father Chico O’Farrill, his work with the Fort Apache Band (whose co-founder Jerry Gonzalez is a key mentor to Annette), and as music director and then bandleader of the Chico O’Farrill Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra. BronXBandA’s fantastic and innovative cd, Love & Resilience / Amor y Resiliencia is available at Bird & Beckett.
