Al Molina was born to a musical family in San Francisco in 1935. He made his mark on the local jazz scene in the early 1960s, first heard on vinyl in the 1966 release, “Jazz from San Francisco,” and named Best Jazz Trumpet in San Francisco by the Bay Area Jazz Society in 1983. Along the way, Al has released three records as a leader, including the great “Amigos Todos” in 2003. He’s toured internationally twice and has appeared at the Monterey, Russian River and San Jose Jazz Festivals over a long and beautiful career.
