Phil Hawkins w/Ray Obiedo

Soundroom, 2147 Broadway, Oakland

Mistura Fina is made up of some of the finest jazz musicians from the San Francisco Bay Area. With its heavy influence of Brazilian & Afro Cuban rhythms, a traditional West Coast Latin Jazz sound is always at the core of the ensemble.

Guitarist/composer, Ray Obiedo, formed this group in 2007 to further explore his love of Latin music. His compositions for the group are drawn from many musical influences, including contemporary Jazz and Funk, Caribbean as well as other music genres.

The rhythm section includes some of Obiedo's mainstays over the past few years, vocalist Sandy Cressman, steel pan master Phil Hawkins, reed player Alex Murzyn, pianist Peter Horvath, bassist Marc van Wageningen and drummer Colin Douglas.

Mistura Fina works with a wonderfully rich array of textures and colors, melding together all of it's musical elements for a delightfully distinct Bay Area flavor.
