Annette A. Aguilar 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, violinist Anthony Blea, pianist Murray Low and bassist Mike Arnold.
Annetteâ€™s current association in NYC with BronXBandA, led by pianist/composer Arturo Oâ€™Farrill, has produced a rich array of concerts and recordings. Oâ€™Farrillâ€™s own associations in Latin jazz start with his father Chico Oâ€™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 Oâ€™Farrill Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra. BronXBandAâ€™s fantastic and innovative cd, Love & Resilience / Amor y Resiliencia is available at Bird & Beckett.
Catch Annette with her full StringBeans band at this year’s Carnaval celebration on the 22nd Street stage (on Harrison Street) Sunday at 1:30pm!
