We all remember what happened last time Juan de Marcos + Afro-Cuban All Stars came to town. The Cuban supergroup packed the house last night, headlining the opening of the 32nd Annual San Francisco Jazz Festival, which runs through June 22nd! Juan de Marcos and Co. are here until Saturday (6/12).

Meanwhile, SFJAZZ Members got a treat in the 100-seat Joe Henderson Lab: drummer Jeff Ballard's Trio featuring guitarist-vocalist Lionel Loueke & saxophonist-SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Director Miguel Zenón. Rare to see such a powerhouse trio in such a small space!
