Jazz aficionados are very much aware the Latin jazz that entered the American music scene by way of Dizzy Gillespie and Chano Pozo in the late 1940's. Since then, as the whole world has embraced the music, many more hybrids from south of the border have emerged. In a concert titled "Jazz meets Mexico and Latin America," guitarist Omar Tamez will combine his gorgeous textures and evocative melodies with the wonderfully percussive piano style of Angelica Sanchez.
Omar Tamez & Angie Sanchez play Friday, April 3, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8:30 p.m. $15 donation, $10 students. 271-3354; bopshop.com.
