This New Mexico Jazz Festival Fall event at the Lensic, features legendary father/daughter percussionists, Pete Escovedo and Sheila E together on stage! Pete Escovedo, a founding member of Santana, has been breaking the barriers between smooth jazz, salsa, Latin jazz, and contemporary music for more than 50 years. His versatility as a percussionist has been featured in performances and recordings with artists ranging from Carlos Santana, Tito Puente and Mongo Santamaria to Herbie Hancock, Bobby McFerrin, Chick Corea, Prince, and many more. Today he leads one of the top Latin Jazz Orchestras in the country and continues to perform throughout the world. His daughter, Sheila E., one of Prince's most beloved collaborators, had her own top-ten hit with her song, "Glamorous Life" and was named one of the top 100 drummers of all-time by Rolling Stone magazine.
