Band Artist (2019)

Francisco Torres















Please join us for the Annual Oceanside Jazz Festival at MiraCosta College on Saturday May 4, 2019. I am extremely excited to announce that this year’s featured guest is Francisco Torres.  Trombonist, composer, arranger, and educator Francisco Torres is the musical director for the Grammy-Award winning Poncho Sanchez Latin Jazz Band and a member of Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band. His recording and performance credits include Aretha Franklin, Terence Blanchard, Dianne Reeves, Natalie Cole, James Moody, Roy Hargrove, Michael Buble, Dr. Dre, Busta Rhymes, Saturday Night Live, Dancing With The Stars, and America's Got Talent. Recent film work includes The Incredibles 2, Coco, and The Secret Life of Pets. 








And because it is May the Fourth...May the Fourth be with you...we are also embracing a Star Wars musical theme for the day! Bands are encouraged to present Star Wars themed music, attire, and anything else they would like to do. Bands are encouraged to present Star Wars themed music. Then enjoy a night that includes some Star Wars themed jazz with guest artist Francisco Torres and our five-time Downbeat Award winners MOJO and the Jazz Collective.
