With Tony Peebles and Christian Tumalan, both members of the Grammy-nominated Pacific Mambo Orchestra, and the uniquely talented Aaron Germain, drummer Brian Andres has assembled a quartet of the highest caliber to present two sets of Latin inflected jazz.
In 2007, after spending his career as a sideman, learning and honing his craft, Brian stepped into the role as bandleader. The San Francisco Bay Area was introduced to The Afro-Cuban Jazz Cartel. Featuring Grammy Award Winning musicians as well as esteemed Music Educators, the group continues the rich heritage of San Francisco Bay Area Latin jazz. Incorporating the rich harmonic and improvisational elements of jazz with the irresistible rhythms from the Caribbean to form “the perfect combination”. The ACJC has become one of the top Latin jazz groups in the Bay Area. With the release of their debut CD, Drummer’s Speak, their 2013 recording, San Francisco, and their 2016 release This Could Be That, they have made a name for themselves performing regularly in the Bay Area and touring in the Midwest.
In 2019 Brian formed Trio Latino, featuring original compositions and arrangements by pianist Christian Tumalan and bassist Aaron Germain. The Latin jazz trio released their debut album Mayan Suite in May 2020. With the addition of saxophonist Tony Peebles, the group is well known and sought as the Brian Andres Quartet.
