2019 Lineup / International

Tango Jazz Quartet

Fri, Aug 10 @ 6pm
Heritage Bank Cafe Stritch Stage

Musical genres have long cross-pollinated styles, and Tango Jazz Quartet is a prime example of the enchantment bestowed by cross-cultural mingling. Based in Argentina, the four-piece band mixes its two namesake traditions, as one would hear in their hometown Buenos Aires in the 1940s and ’50s.

Yoshiaki Miyanoue

Fri, Aug 10 @ 10pm
El Taurino Stage

Guitarist Yoshiaki Miyanoue embodies the global nature of jazz having gone full circle from impressionable music student in his native Tokyo to ambassador for the American art form two and a half decades later. With his Wes Montgomery-inspired pick-free playing, he inspires both foot tapping and serious listening.

Yissy & Bandancha

Sat, Aug 11 @ 2pm
Sobrato Organization Main Stage

In drummer Yissy García’s Bandancha, trumpet and acoustic percussion meet keyboards, bass guitar and turntables for an exhilarating fusion. While the Bandancha sound is rooted in the bandleader’s native Cuba’s indigenous, African and jazz traditions, it expands to R&B, funk and electronic music while held together by dynamic virtuosic performances.
