The living legend with the shining trumpet is back in SMA. Luis Gasca, a frequent visitor to San Miguel (which he considers his second home) enjoys hanging out and playing with the talented musicians we have in town. He likes to recall the old days when he used to visit the night clubs and concert halls of New York, taking in performances by the greatest stars of the time such as John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Tito Puente, Mongo Santamaría, Willy Bobo, and Machito, all of whom inspired Gasca’s career as a trumpet player. Before long he had the pleasure of sharing the stage with these and other artists of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, such as Pérez Prado, Janis Joplin, and Santana, experimenting with different musical styles ranging from Chicano rock with Beto Villa and Little Joe Hernández to jazz in all its forms. Jazz became his main musical style in his recordings Little Giant Collage and For those Who Chant.

Having already left his mark on the Afro-jazz and cool jazz genres, Luis Gasca will be showcasing these musical inspirations in San Miguel Allende. This time Gasca (trumpet), accompanied by well known local musicians Kimani Carrazana on percussion, Yamil Vásquez on piano, and Aaron Romo on bass, will present a repertoire featuring the rhythms and complexity of the musical style known as “Jazzsoneando” in a concert combining Afro-Caribbean mestizo sounds with enjoyable jazz compositions.
