About this image

Diego Figueiredo is a Brazilian jazz guitarist with virtuosic talent and a refreshing, energetic style that places him among the greatest guitarists in the world. Diego joined an all star band of Latin artists for a unique event at Palm Springs Art Museum's Annenberg Theater in late fall of 2017. "Jazz Meets Latin Jazz" is the brainchild of Marcel Castaneda, a manager and producer of some top Latin Jazz artists. Based in the Coachella Valley, Marcel wanted to bring his best musicians from the Latin Jazz world together with Western jazz artists creating a multicultural music experience. This inaugural event featured Carol Welsman, Juno award winning Canadian singer/songwriter and pianist, for the first set. The second set was led by pianist Chuchito Valdes and featured almost a small orchestra of master musicians in the Latin Jazz genre. Diego sat in on a few numbers in the first set and was a featured player throughout the second set.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
