A spokesperson describes the event as follows:

"...With nine indoor and outdoor venues featuring more than 80 artists representing the best in jazz, R&B, Latin jazz, salsa, soul, funk, bossa nova, blues, and a myriad of other idioms, SJZ Summer Fest 2024 also proudly presents the most stylistically diverse Latin music event on the West Coast. San Jose Jazz's eclectic programming reflects the city's longtime role as the epicenter of Latin culture in Northern California, while highlighting the deep rhythmic currents connecting California to the Caribbean and Central and South America.

"SJZ Summer Fest 2024 reaches new heights by presenting piano/keyboard legend Herbie Hancock (Main Stage Headliner -- Sat. Aug. 10), whose trailblazing role introducing synthesizers and new audio technologies to jazz and funk make him a perfect fit for Silicon Valley. Hancock marks the highest profile artist yet to grace the Main Stage at SJZ Summer Fest over the festival's 34-year history...
