Hi-Octane Latin Jazz from some of the great practitioners of the art! Annette left San Francisco for New York at a young age thirty years ago, well grounded in the music since childhood — from family traditions and Mission District experience in an era when Santana, Azteca and Malo were shaping a sound that shook up the nation.

Thirty years on, she’s a major force in the Latin music scene back East, hyper-active with her StringBeans, her annual festivals of women in Latin Jazz, her spontaneous street corner sets outside Bronx bodegas, her tireless work in the schools, her central role in Arturo O’Farrill’s BronXBanda outfit.

She’ll have BronXBanda swag in hand at this Bird & Beckett date, and her trademark StringBeans pandemic masks, free for the taking by those of you generous in contributing to the band’s upkeep and the venue’s viability!

With Anthony Blea on violin, Bob Crawford on piano and Mike Arnold on bass, expect a smooth ride down a boulevard of Latin dreams, and when those engines rev up, watch out!
