SMITH DOBSON QUINTET FT. THE LEGENDARY JOHN SANTOS ON PERCUSSION

Smith Dobson is a triple jazz threat, a respected and much sought player on saxophone, vibes and drums. He’s heir to several generations of family talent — his father was a top pianist on the scene through his untimely death in 2001, and his mother is a jazz singer and teacher of repute.

Seven-time Grammy-nominated percussionist, US Artists Fontanals Fellow, and 2013-2014 SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Director, John Santos, is one of the foremost exponents of Afro-Latin music in the world today.

Born in San Francisco, California, November 1, 1955, he was raised in the Puerto Rican and Cape Verdean traditions of his family, surrounded by music. The fertile musical environment of the San Francisco Bay Area shaped his career in a unique way.

His studies of Afro-Latin music have included several trips to New York, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Brazil and Colombia. He is known for his innovative use of traditional forms and instruments in combination with contemporary music, and has earned much respect and recognition as a prolific performer, composer, teacher, writer, radio programmer, and record/event producer whose career has spanned four decades.
