ARTOWN HEADLINER SERIES: OMAR SOSA QUARTETO AMERICANOS
Omar Sosa Quarteto Americanos, featuring Josh Jones, drums, Sheldon Brown, saxophones, clarinets Ernesto Mazar Kinde. Quarteto Americanos is Sosa's first U.S.-based jazz ensemble since the 1990s! The group came together in February 2021 when Omar was in the Bay Area for several livestreams. Connecting with Josh and Sheldon was a gratifying reunion for Omar, as he played extensively with them during his early days in San Francisco and Oakland in the late 1990s. Josh Jones' Trio at the time, including Omar and bassist Geoff Brennan, played frequently at Bay Area clubs. Josh remains one of Omar's favorite drummers - a versatile musician and educator equally at home in Latin, jazz, hip-hop and fusion styles. Sheldon Brown was a member of Omar's first Septet ensembles in the Bay Area, performing in San Francisco and Oakland and around the world in support of Omar's earliest recording projects, Free Roots, Spirit of the Roots and Bembón, also known as the Roots Trilogy. Sheldon is a talented composer, arranger and producer whose first recording, Shifting Currents, caught Omar's ear when he first moved to San Francisco in 1995. Ernesto Mazar Kindelán is a dynamic Cuban musician who came to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2014 following a 10-year stint with Charanga Habanera, the celebrated Cuban timba band from Havana.
