The 2010 Sitka Jazz Festival, to be held Feb. 4 to 6, will feature two evenings of high-energy Latin jazz. This year's lineup includes The John Santos Sextet, a Latin Jazz group from the San Francisco Bay area; trombonist Wayne Wallace, also from the Bay Area; and Kristin Korb, vocalist and bassist from Los Angeles.
The festival will include free brown bag lunch concerts, evening concerts, an array of workshops and clinics as well as Artist in the Schools performances in all local schools.
Joining these artists will again be jazz educator Bob Athayde, Sitka's Ed Littlefield and Mike Sullivan, and the amazing Greatlanders Air Force Band of the Pacific, as well as other local musicians.
