Add to Calendar 2014-05-31 7:30 PM 2014-05-31 Healdsburg Jazz Festival: Charlie Musselwhite with John Santos y Sus Soneros: Blues on the Porch and "continental Drifter Revisited" at Jackson Theater At Sonoma Country Day School Celebrating the Blues, Pt. 1: This first of two evenings at the Jackson Theater will display multiple facets of Charlie Musselwhite. Saturday’s first set, “Blues on the Porch,” showcases Charlie’s rural-blues roots in solo, duo and trio configurations with guitar hero Elvin Bishop—another of those youngsters who hightailed it to Chicago, where he became a founding member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band — and Guy Davis, a guitar and banjo specialist (see the Blues Brunch), not to mention an actor of distinction on stage and screen whose parents are Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis. Saturday’s second set opens a window on Charlie’s most unique historical project, a blues and Afro-Cuban jazz collaboration he created on the disc in 1999 with sublime Cuban guitarist Eliades Ochoa and the band Cuarteto Patria. Ochoa is best known Stateside for his work in the 1999 film Buena Vista Social Club. The harmonica may not seem a natural fit with Cuban jazz at first swipe, but Charlie makes it happen with open ears, a generosity of spirit and English lyrics he composed for Cuban standards like “Chan Chan” and “Sabroso.” The program will feature Charlie playing with local Latin jazz star John Santos y Sus Soneros — specializing in the Son style — featuring Cuban percussion giants Orestes Vilato and Jose “Perico” Hernandez, who also sings, plus flautist John Calloway, guitarist Gabriel Navia, bassist Steve Senft-Herrera and Santos on percussion.
