Set against the backdrop of downtown San Diego’s skyline at sunset, the event series will continue to feature jazz entertainment to enjoy alongside a selection of traditional and craft cocktails, fine whiskey, wine and beer as well as an array of appetizers and tapas. Guests will also enjoy the atmosphere of the Westgate Hotel’s recently reimagined rooftop including an expansive living wall, sparkling pool, modern lounge furniture, 360-degree views and service that evokes the European spirit for which the Westgate is known.
The September line up for the Westgate’s Sunset Poolside Jazz Series is below. All performances begin at 6:30p.m.
• September 4: Charlie Chavez Quartet is a virtuoso percussionist whose performances are a fusion of his exquisite talent, passionate spirit and rigorous study of the history of Latin percussion.
• September 11: ZZYMZZY Quartet known for their gypsy swing, can be heard in much of the guitar work, heavily influenced by the stylings of French Gypsy jazz legend Django Reinhardt. The group also pays tribute to the Swing Era with classic standards and idiomatic originals.
• September 18: Gilbert Castellanos Hammond B3 Trio makes Afro-Cuban jazz music that sounds effortless. Skilled with impressive dexterity and control, the clarity of expression moves listeners on a deeply emotional level.
• September 25: Christopher Hollyday Quartet’s traditional jazz shows impressive technique in music that bespeaks ambition and determination. Hollyday has a bright, confident tone and can riffle through scales and arpeggios at top speed.
This exclusive weekly jazz series is presented by the Westgate Hotel with international trumpet virtuoso Gilbert Castellanos and Sound of the New Machine.
