Guitar Night with Camila Meza and Charles Altura

Finesse plus fireworks and great songs.

Chilean native Camila Meza possesses an innate and rare combination of qualities as a singer and guitar player who also writes her own songs and arrangements. She has a highly expressive voice with a unique timbre and way of phrasing, while her improvisations and accompaniment on the guitar are equally touching and soulful. Her Chilean roots and profound connection to jazz give her music a very special and appealing sound. Charles Altura has spent the past couple years performing with jazz heavyweights such as Terrence Blanchard, Chick Corea, and Ambrose Akinmusire, and is gaining recognition for his prodigious talent and unique style. This double-bill presents two of the most exciting young artists in jazz in a single performance of the kind that you can hear only at SJW.
