Salsa De La Bahia is a 2 CD set of 3 brand new all-star recordings and 19 previously released songs by Bay Area salsa and Latin jazz groups. It is a musical snapshot of state-of-the art salsa music that artists in the Bay Area have culled over the last 10 years. It also serves as a homage to the musicians and dancers whose vision, energy and talent still resound to inspire us all. Second to NYC, the Bay Area Latin jazz scene is historically one of the most active Latin jazz scenes starting with Cal Tjader bringing great Latin percussionists Armando Peraza, and Francisco Aguabella to the San Francisco Bay Area.
"The musical spectrum of Salsa De La Bahia shows the kaleidoscope of Afro-Latin musical colors seen and heard around the Bay Area.”
