Primary Instrument: Band/orchestra
Jose Rizo's Jazz on the Latin Side All Stars is a 15-piece all-star ensemble made up of legendary figures, world-class studio musicians, great jazz artists, and popular bandleaders. This tight ensemble was formed a few months after a big jam session at B. B. Kings on the Universal City Walk in the Los Angeles area.
Bandleader/jazz radio announcer Jose Rizo named the band after his latin jazz radio program Jazz on the Latin Side on KKJZ 88.1 FM (KJazz) in Long Beach, California. The Jazz on the Latin Side All Stars proudly represent KJazz where ever they perform. This versatile ensemble feels as comfortable playing progressive latin jazz as it does playing tremendous salsa dura....
