      Hammer Theatre Center presents "Black Cab Jazz - Melissa Aldana Trio"

      Downtown San Jose will bustle with the sounds of modern jazz in a brand new intimate concert series Black Cab Jazz, to be presented from autumn 2019 through winter 2020. The series is named after presenter Hammer Theatre Center’s intimate black box theatre space, where the concerts will be held in the spirit of classic intimate cabaret shows. Audiences will see today’s hottest jazz artists with 4-top seating amongst a maximum capacity of 120 audience members. Curated by Internationally renowned arts organization San Jose Jazz in partnership with the Hammer Theatre Center, this riveting set of up-close performances will feature Blue Note Records drummer Kendrick Scott (Oct. 20), sizzling vocalist Quiana Lynell (Nov. 8), one of New York’s finest drummers Matt Wilson and his “Honey & Salt” Quintet (Feb. 21), and award-winning saxophonist Melissa Aldana Trio (Mar. 20).

      On her first jazz quartet album "Visions" (2019), award-winning saxophonist Melissa Aldana connects her work to the legacy of Latina artists who have come before her. Inspired by the life and works of Frida Kahlo, Aldana creates a parallel between her experiences as a female saxophone player in a male-dominated community, and Kahlo’s experiences as a female visual artist working to assert herself in a landscape dominated by men. On "Visions," Aldana adds a new dimension to her sound, resulting in a transformative movement of expression and self-identity.

      Cost: Payment required - $20: Bleachers/$25: Rounds; sold in pairs or fours only (includes a fruit/cheese/nut plate).
