Great concert "Pulque Jazz"
It brought together three major proposals in San Luis Potosi in "Just Jazz"
The first date was enjoyed the presentation of the local Jazz Pulque, where the pace reached unexpected textures, making sounds that the audience liked.
His proposal does transcend Mexican Danzon and jazz through fusion with other rhythms resulting in an elegant style and a touch of Mexican. The group has participated in several scenes as the festival of Cerro de San Pedro, Jazz Festival Real de Catorce, Children's Book Fair and Youth San Luis Potosi, among other venues.
A detail of great animosity was that senior age group danzón the Mexican Social Security Institute, took the stage to dance piece masterfully executed by jazz and concurrency Pulque was delighted to see accomplished dancers.
Note that Pulque jazz emerged as a large group, because their music is accessible, and charmed the audience that packed the Bicentennial Theatre.
Meanwhile Lorraine Desmarais Big Band Jazz continued with more on Friday August 31 where the pianist and composer Lorraine Desmarais demonstrated his extraordinary talent accompanied by his Big Band with the best of the Montreal jazz scene to give life to his own compositions stage.

In conclusion, Luis Nacht and his quartet closed Saturday night "Just Jazz" with a concert on Saturday September 1. In the proposal, the Argentine was with three great talents instrumentalists: Carpossi Patrick (guitar), Hernan Hecht (drums) and Benjamin Garcia (bass).
